Kathmandu is the city of temples. The Pashupatinath temple is one of the most important temples of Hinduism and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The temple is an architectural beauty and stands as a symbol of faith, religion, culture and tradition.
Boudhanath Stupa is known for its large Stupa and has for centuries been one of the most important pilgrimages for Buddhists. With a height of about 36 meters, the Stupa is one of the largest of its kind. Buddhist pilgrims circle the building clockwise.
Swayambhunath or also called (because of the large monkey population) Monkey temple is situated on a hill, from where you can enjoy a magnificent view of Kathmandu. The most striking element of the temple is the Buddhist Stupa, which is flanked by two Hindu towers. As in many other places in Kathmandu Buddhist and Hindu Temples are closely linked here.
Bhaktapur is one of the three ancient royal cities in the Kathmandu Valley and lies on an ancient trade route that leads to Tibet. From the period between the 14th and 18th centuries, many of the about 172 temples and decorated wooden relief of residential buildings were built. Bhaktapur is also known for its pottery and woodcarving.
