Mesocosm offers an entirely new understanding of the role of a traditional Hindu city in the lives of its inhabitants. In Bhaktapur, Hinduism reached its fullest potential for organizing communities. Robert Levy was able to document Bhaktapur's unqiue structure, in which the public life of the community and the private worlds of its members shared a complex social and religious relationship.
