The Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal offers an incomparable blend of high mountains and rich cultures. Nepal embraces the Central Himalaya including eight of the world’s 10 highest peaks, rushing rivers and rolling terraced hills, steamy tropics and high altitude plains. Nepal’s unique blend of Hinduism and Buddhism is endlessly fascinating, more so with its rich mosaic of ethnically diverse people. Thus, Nepal is a haven for its picturesque scenery & friendly people.
Kathmandu Durbar Square – Sightseeing tour of Kathmandu Durbar Square, with its old temples and palaces, epitomizes the religious and cultural life of the people. Here, the kings of Nepal are crowned and solemnized. Interesting things for visitors to see are Taleju temple, gigantic figure of Kalbhairav (the god of destruction), Basantapur Durbar, and Temple of Kumari (living goddess).
Swayambhunath Stupa – The world’s most glorious Buddhist Chaityas built 2000 years ago and situated on a hillock about 77 metres above the level of the Kathmandu Valley. Visitors will also have a grand view of the valley from this spot.
Patan Durbar Square – The square boasts of many famous sites and unique architecture. Krishna Mandir in the Patan Durbar Square was built to honour an incarnation of Vishnu. Krishna was a favourite among the “Gopini” (cowgirls). His temple is the best example of stone architecture in the World. Scenes from the Mahabharat, Asia’s greatest mythological war, are carved on the temple’s walls.
The streets in the Patan Durbar Square area are home to traditional artists and sculptors. Many more temples are dedicated to Ganesh (the elephant-headed god), Shiva, Narsingha & Taleju.
Bhaktapur Durbar Square – Bhaktapur which means the ‘city of devotees’ is a home of medieval art and architecture. Pottery and weaving are its traditional industries.
Boudhanath (Little Tibet) – UNESCO World Heritage Site – Boudhanath is among the largest stupas in South Asia, and it has become the focal point of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. The white mound looms 36 meters overhead. The stupa is located on the ancient trade route to Tibet, and the Tibetan merchants have rested and offered prayers here for many centuries. In the 1950s many refugees entered Nepal from Tibet and many have also decided to live around Boudhanath. Thus, the “Little Tibet” of Nepal was born.
This “Little Tibet” is still the best place in the Valley to observe Tibetan lifestyle. Monks are seen walking about in their maroon robes. The Tibetans also walk with their prayer wheels in their hands, and the rituals of prostration are presented to the Buddha as worshippers circumambulate the stupa on their hands and knees, bowing down to their lord.
