The tour includes a visit to four different places: Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath, Bauddhanath and Swayambhunath temples. These sites hold both religious and cultural importance to the Nepalese people and to other devotees from around the world. This destination can be taken as the Family Tour in Nepal spot.
After breakfast, we commence our visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites that starts within the Kathmandu District. These sites include Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath Temple, Swayambhunath and Bauddhanath.
Kathmandu Durbar Square showcases Nepalese art and architecture at its best. The architecture is typical of the Malla dynasty who ruled over Nepal from the 12th to 18th centuries. It is one of the three major places in Kathmandu valley. It is obvious to be overwhelmed by the seemingly uncountable monuments that reflect the history, in the Kathmandu Durbar Square.
The house of the Living Goddess (Kumari Ghar), the frightening God Kal Bhairab, Taleju Temple, Makhan Pashupati, handicraft shops, many Chowks (Courtyard), and erotic carvings are a few examples of the sights at the Square.
The Swayambhunath Temple or Swoyambhu is believed to be the world’s oldest Buddhist Stupa, dated the 5th century. It is situated on a beautiful hill. Swoyambhu has a compelling mix of both Hindu and Buddhist shrines and stupas. It is popularly known amongst foreigners as the Monkey Temple as there is large population of monkeys residing in the area. You can see the whole Kathmandu valley from the height of Swoyambhu temple.
Pashupatinath Temple is situated on the banks of river Bagmati. It holds great significance in Hindu’s life as it is one of the main temples of Lord Shiva. The temple area is full of other smaller temples of numerous Hindu idols which gives the whole place an ambiance of a sacred paradise. The cremation ceremony of the Hindus is also conducted at the back of this temple in the Bagmati river’s bank. During the evening time, the devotees perform ‘saajh aarati’, dances and worship songs dedicated to the Lord.
The Bauddhanath Stupa is one of the largest stupas in South Asia. It was built on the ancient trade route to Tibet in a Nepali Buddhist style. Besides the main stupa, there are over fifty Tibetan monasteries around the area. They were built by the Tibetan merchants and the large influx of Tibetan refugees over the years. Here, you get to appreciate the spectacular art and architecture of ancient Nepal including that of neighboring Tibet.
In conclusion, the Kathmandu World Heritage Sites tour will provide you an opportunity to witness the ancient art, culture, traditions, and lifestyles of different time periods in Nepal. On this tour, you will be able to learn about the different dynasties who ruled in Kathmandu.
In addition, you will also get to go to the sacred Hindu Temple Pashupatinath and the Buddhist sites of Boudhanath and Swayambunath (the Monkey Temple).
