one day kathmandu tour photo pasupatinath

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 the biggest temple complex in Nepal, it extends on the two sides of the Bagmati River which is visited as heaven by Hindus.

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


    Swyambhunath Stupa, Monkey Temple

    Tourists visiting Kathmandu called it “Monkey Temple” from the 1970s. The temple is located in the northwest of the Kathmandu Valley, giving visitors a 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.

    1 Day Kathmandu Tour

    By the meaning of Swayambhunath; this place is believed to be a 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 believe their god, Ganesha cut the same hill of Chovar, to pass the water from Kathmandu valley. However, these 2 legendary gods cut the hill in different sections of hill, so as to spillway water from 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. Swayambhunath was built by King Manadeva. And by the 13th century, it had become an important center of Buddhism, as well as Hinduism in the 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 (Swayambhunath) complex. Swayambhunath stupa is atop of a hill in Kathmandu valley, where the base of the hill is almost entirely surrounded by prayer wheels and pictures or statues of deities. You will see Buddhist devotees circumnavigating the Swayambhunath stupa hill, more in the morning and the evenings.
