After breakfast, we commence our visits to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites beginning 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 century.
The Swayambhunath Temple has a compelling mix of both Hindu and Buddhist shrines and stupas.
It is popularly known amongst foreigners as the Monkey Temple owing to the large monkey
population residing in the area.
Pashupatinath Temple is situated on the banks of river Bagmati and is one of the main temples of
Lord Shiva. The temple area is full of other smaller temples of numerous Hindu deities which gives
the whole place an ambience of a sacred paradise.
The Bouddhanath Stupa is one of the largest stupas in South Asia which was built on the ancient
trade route to Tibet. Beside the main stupa which was built in a Nepali Buddhist style, there are over
fifty Tibetan monasteries around the area built by Tibetan merchants and the large influx of Tibetan
refugees over the years. Here, you not only get to appreciate the spectacular art and architecture of
ancient Nepal but that of neighboring Tibet as well.
