Unmatta Bhairab Temple is in typical traditional Nepalese style of 16th Century AD with its construction dating from this period. The fantastic carved doors and windows are testament to the highly developed skills and sensitivity of the local craftsmen.

BHAIRAB is one of the many forms of the Hindu God MAHADEV (SHIVA) and an image of him in his peaceful and most passionate form (UNMATTA) is in the Inner Sanctum of the temple. Extremely rare wooden images of saints appear from the upper floor window, looking down on the devotees.
