To cross a street in Kathmandu is to travel across centuries. Shrines, temples, palaces, palace squares, ageless sculptures and legends that are parts of every brick and stone and gilded masterpiece, make Kathmandu Valley a verifiable living museum.
In this program we have included to see most of the sightseeing places. Below are given the short information about the place you visit.
Kathmandu Durbar Square: This complex of palaces, courtyards and temples like Hanumandhoka Palace, Kumari Ghar (Abode of the Living Goddess), Taleju temple, built between the 12th and 18th centuries, used to be the seat of the ancient Malla Kings of Kathmandu. An intriguing piece here is the 17h -century stone inscription set into the wall of the palace with writings in 15 languages. The Durbar Square, protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the social, religious and urban focal point of the city. Even to date, all the major state and social ceremonies, including the solemnization of coronations are performed in one of the courtyards in this complex. There are also museums inside the palace building.
Swayambhu Stupa: watches over the Valley from the top of a hillock on its western side just three kilometers west of the city center. The stupa is one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Nepal and its establishment is linked to the creation of the Kathmandu Valley out of a primordial lake. Swayambhu is also known as Samhengu and is listed as a World Heritage Site. It is also one of the oldest and glorious Buddhist shrines in the world which is said to be two thousand years. The four sides of the stupa is painted with the eyes of Lord Buddha and the temple is also known as the watchful eyes of Buddha.
Bouddhanath Stupa lies about 6 km east of downtown Kathmandu and is the largest Stupa in the Valley and one of the largest in the world. It looms 36 meters high and presents one of the most fascinating specimens of stupa design with hundreds of prayer wheels and 108 small images of Buddha all around.
Bhaktapur Durbar Square: another palace complex of the Malla King's during 9th - 18th Century is located in the center of Bhaktapur. The Square is one of the most charming architectural showpieces of the Valley as it highlights some of the finest medieval arts of Nepal. The main items of interest in Bhaktapur Durbar Square are the Lion Gate, the Golden Gate and the statues of kings on stone monoliths.
Changunarayan temple: has a very significant value in the history of the valley, it being the oldest temple in Kathmandu valley. Situated on a hillock, Changunarayan is towards the north east of the capital. Distant from the city's clamor, Changunarayan offers its artistic value supplemented with green vegetation and natural bliss. This two storeyed temple built around 230 A.D. is grand with carvings on each of its doors, especially the brass work done on the southern door, and also the main entrance to the temple is rare and exquisite and is unsurpassed among other brass work.
Dakshinkali: temple is dedicated to Goddess Kali, situated about 28 km south-west of Kathmandu . It is an important place of pilgrimage, drawing over 400000 pilgrims a year. Pilgrims visit this temple to offer prayers and animal sacrifices to the Goddess Kali every Tuesday and Saturday.
Chovar Gorge: This gorge is situated nine Kilometers southwest of Kathmandu . All the waters of the valley drain through it. Legend says that the god Mnajushree cut the gorge to drain out kathmandu Valley which was then a lake.
Kritipur: is on a hill, 5km southwest of Kathmandu. In the past there were 12 gates of the town. Parts of the old city wall still remain. The main industry in town is the Kirtipur Cottage Industry Centre and most of the residents are either weavers or farmers. There are some great views of Kathmandu and the mountains behind it.
