Kathmandu Tour & Travel Guide - Places to See in Kathmandu
Garden of Dreams
A peaceful little enclave in the midst of the busy city, this garden is a perfect place to relax and meditate. Paved pathways run through the area, with sunken flower pools on either side. A large pond sits in the centre of the garden and there are a variety of plants and flowers to be found. A beautifully landscaped garden and a pleasure to take a stroll around.
Pashupatinath (Temple of Living Beings)
On the banks of the Bagmati river sits the temple of Pashupati- The Lord of Beasts. A form of Lord Shiva, the Pashupati temple is one of the most important Hindu temples in the region. It is a two-tiered golden temple with silver doors and hundreds of Shiva lingas.
An important site for Buddhists, the Boudha Stupa is a beautiful structure and one of the largest in the world. The shrine is surrounded by temples and the homes of the Lamas. This Buddhist stupa was built by King Man Deva and sits on an octagonal base. The area is also home to many Tibetan refugees. Souvenir shops and restaurants can be easily found in this complex.
One of the most sacred Buddhist sites in Nepal, this ancient stupa sits atop a hill and is over 2000 years old. Climb stone steps up the hill, past various shrines and sculptures, to get to the top and witness some great views of the Kathmandu valley. There are shops selling trinkets and a few restaurants here as well.
The traditional heart of the old town, this was where Nepal’s kings were crowned and from where they ruled. The place is dotted with palaces and temples. The Taleju temple is one such, and a perfect example of Newari architecture, with its three roves and pyramid shaped base.
Situated in Durbar Square, this was the palace of the king of Nepal at one point. Built between the 12th and 18th centuries by the Malla kings, the complex houses over thirty courtyards and multiple chowks and buildings. The complex has undergone many renovations since then and the palace has also shifted multiple times.
