Your tour begins from today and it begins from the capital city—Katmandu. You will be visiting four UNESCO listed sites—Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath, Bouddhanath, Swoyambhunath, and Pashupatinath.
To make your tour full of excitement, easy and informative, we will provide you with all required facilities such as a certified city tour guide, private vehicle and map if necessary.
Kathmandu Durbar Square will be the first site of your visit. It is located at the center of the city. As per stone scriptures, Kings belonging to Lichhavi dynasty were the first to construct palace and temple here in the 3rd century. But no remains of that period are found at present.
Later, a king from Malla dynasty, Ratna Malla, built a palace in 1484. Different kinds of the dynasty constructed and contributed in the making of palace and temples in different spaces of time in the vicinity of Durbar Square.
Monkey Palace (Hanuman Dhoka), Kumari Ghar (House of Living Goddes) and Kastamandap are the main attractions of this site.
Pashupatinath is our today’s next destination. It is the greatest Hindu shrine where Lord Shiva is worshipped in the form of Linga. Of the total of 12 Jytrolingas across the globe, Pashupatinath is considered to be the head part and remaining 11 collectively make the body. The literal meaning of Pashupatinath is ‘The Lord of animal’ and is the national deity of this country.
The destination witnesses over a million faith-based tourists every year especially in the time of Shiva Ratri (Lord Shiva’s birthday).
Bouddhanath is our next destination. It is quite close to Pashupatinath. It is a popular and renowned Buddhist site. The stupa—Bouddhanath—is regarded as biggest stupa of South Asia. The monasteries built in the vicinity of the Bouddhanath are other attractions where we will be paying a brief visit.
To wrap up the day, we visit Swoyambhunath. This site attracts nearly a million of Buddhist pilgrims a year across the globe. According to the legend, the existence of Swoyambhunath is since eternity and the civilization of Kathmandu valley is said to be started with the existence of Swoyambhunath. The literal meaning of Swoyambhunath is ‘Self Existing’.
