Peacock Window

Peacock Window was constructed in Bhaktapur, Nepal, in the fifteenth century. It is one of the most priceless works of art in the nation and is frequently referred to as the "Mona Lisa" of Nepal. A big, beautifully designed peacock carving with tail feathers forming a lattice window sits in the center of the sculpture, which also includes other smaller bird carvings.

One of the well-known tourist attractions is Peacock Window, which is located in Dattararya Square , Bhaktapur. The monarch Yaksha Malla constructed it in the 15th Century, and it has a lovely creative design. Near the main Dattatraya Temple, on the first  floor of the Pujari Math, is where you’ll find the Peacock Window. Among the several Math(Shrines) in Bhaktapur, it is the biggest. There once resided soldiers and royal officials who were connected to King Yaksha Malla . In this ancient temple, a variety of artistic shapes may be seen. The primary highlight of this structure is the unique creative design on each and every window and door. It is thought that the carpenters who worked on building this shrine may have competed with one another. The building’s whole woodwork is from the 15th (Fifteenth) Century.

Peacock is a stunning and untamed bird. Buddhists revere Abhitabha Buddha while Hindus worship Peacock as the representative of God Kumar. Peacocks dance so beautifully that anyone who watches them will have a pleasant and beneficial day. That is why a little window might have been constructed under Yaksha Malla‘s rule so that time would favor the residents of the town. The public can view the old artwork and handicrafts in this building up close for a set admission cost. On Tuesdays and on federal holidays, the museum is still closed.

Despite minor damage from the 2015 Earthquake, the building’s most notable feature, the exquisite 15th-Century Peacock Window, which is recognized as the best carved window in the valley, is still in tact.
