Also known as Hanuman Dhoka Square, Kathmandu Durbar Square or Kumari Temple; it is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Also called Basantapur Durbar square of Kathmandu is one of the main attractions the capital city of Nepal. The name Hanuman Dhoka Durbar is originated from the statue of Hanuman set up by the King Pratap Malla. This statue of hanuman can still be sighted at the passage of the regal royal residence, constructed by pratap malla in 1672 A.D.

There are several temples, shrines, courtyards, and a palace inside the Durbar square that reflects the art and architecture of the medieval time.

Boudhanath Stupa, largest Stupa

Boudhanath is a perfect tourist spots among many attractions  in Kathmandu, located 8 km toward the East of downtown Kathmandu.

The 36-meter-high stupa of Boudhanath is one of the biggest stupas in South Asia. Focal point of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal, Boudhanath has incalculable religious communities encompassing it.

Pashupatinath Temple, Hindu Cremation place in Kathmandu

Pashupatinath is one of the four most vital religious sites in Asia devoted to Lord Shiva for devotees of Shiva.

Built in the fifth century, and later redesigned/reconstructed by Malla rulers, Pashupatinath temple site itself is said to have existed from the earliest human civilization. Pashupati has biggest temple complex in Nepal, it extends on the two sides of the Bagmati River which is visited as heaven by Hindus.

Among atheist, this Hindu temple can be an interesting place in Kathmandu, to see the complete (almost) process of cremation.

Swyambhunath Stupa, Monkey Temple

Tourist visiting Kathmandu called it “Monkey Temple” from the 1970s. The temple is located in the northwest of the Kathmandu Valley, giving visitors panoramic view of the city overlooking most of the Kathmandu settlement and the mountains in far sight.

The stupa has stood as a hallmark of faith and harmony. Hindu temples and deities incorporated in this Buddhist site, to show religious harmony. The glory of Kathmandu Valley is said to have started from this point, indeed.

By the meaning of Swyambhunath; this place is believed as self-founded religious site of Kathmandu valley.

Situated at 3 km west of Kathmandu, Swayambhu is one of the holiest Buddhist stupa in Kathmandu. More than 2,000 years ago Kathmandu used to be a lake and this temple was bulging out of the lake, before a fairy tale legend, Manjushree cut the hill of chovar with her sword. Manjushree is a deity of Buddhism. For the same incident, Hindus believes, their god, Ganesha cut the same hill of Chovar, to pass the water from Kathmandu valley. However, these 2 legendary god cut the hill in different section of hill, so as to spillway water of Kathmandu pond, in history.

This stupa is the oldest of its kind in Nepal and has numerous shrines and monasteries on its premises till this date.

Literal meaning of Swayambhu is “self-existent one” and is believed to date back to 460 A.D. Swyambhunath was built by King Manadeva. And by the 13th century, it had become an important center of Buddhism, as well as Hinduism in late medieval period.

Story says that Swayambhu was formed out of a lotus flower. Lotus bloomed in the middle of a lake of Kathmandu & that once spread across the Kathmandu Valley. Thus the largest image of the Sakyamuni Buddha, sits on a high pedestal on the western boundary of Swayambhu. Behind the hilltop is a temple dedicated to Manjusri or Saraswati – the Goddess of learning.

Chaityas, statues and shrines of Buddhist and Hindu deities fill the monkey temple (Swyambhunath) complex. Swyambhunath stupa is atop of a hill in Kathmandu valley, where the base of the hill is almost entirely surrounded by prayer wheels and picture or statues of deities. You will see Buddhist devotees circumnavigating the Swyambhunath stupa hill, more in the morning and the evenings.
