Full day world heritage sightseeing tour of Boudhanath, Pashupatinath, and Kathmandu Durbar Square.
Bouddhanath: – is the largest and the most fascinating religious structure ever built in Nepal. This colossal Stupa is known by the name of Boudhanath, the god of wisdom. This Stupa stands upon a massive octagonal basement. It is in various levels of terraces, painted in pastel, and adorned with prayer flags of five different colors. The area of Boudhanath is also known as ‘Mini Tibet’ since you will see a large number of monasteries, which were constructed mostly in Tibetan style in the last three decades. The settlement of Boudhanath has the largest community of Tibetan refugees.
Pashupatinath: – Pashupatinath, situated 5 km east of Kathmandu is dedicated to Lord Shiva, with a two-tiered golden roof and silver door is considered one of the holiest shrines for Hindus. Although only Hindus are allowed inside the temple, visitors can clearly see the temple and the activities performed in the temple premises from the eastern bank of the Bagmati River.
Kathmandu Durbar Square: – is a wondrous cluster of ancient temples, palaces, courtyards, and streets. The most noteworthy among them are the Hanumandhoka palace complex, and the Taleju temple. Even to date, all major state and social ceremonies, including the solemnization of coronations, are carried out in one or the other courtyards within this complex.
The royal enclave presently houses three museums. The monuments in and around the area are so charming that each appears more wondrous than the one next to it. During this tour, you will also visit the Temple of Kumari (the Living Goddess) who represents a very ancient Hindu deity of Nepal locally known as Taleju, which is Buddhist by birth. The building has intricately carved wooden balconies and window screens. The Kumari acknowledges greetings from her balcony window. Once a year, during the Indra Jatra festival, the King of Nepal seeks the Kumari’s blessings. O/N at Hotel.
