The highlight of a day trip in Kathmandu
Kathmandu Durbar Square: is an ancient palace of art and large building built by the King of Mala in the middle Ages. It is located in the center of Kathmandu and is busy most of the time. The pillars, buildings and windows of the palace reflect art, architecture, craftsmanship and design. There are many small temples around the palace that give it a fascinating look. The palace is also known as Hanuman Dhoka. A large statue of Hanuman was placed in front of a door in Durbar, whose name was Hanuman Dhoka. Built in the 14th century, this magical palace is the crown of the king when he ruled the monarchy. Since 1997, it has been on the list of UNESCO heritage sites in Kathmandu.
Swayambhunath Stupa: one of the oldest Buddhist stupas in the Kathmandu Valley. Located at the top of the hill, it is a perfect view of the entire Kathmandu valley. Since the pagoda has many monkeys, the pagoda is also known as the Temple of the Monkey. In this stupa you can find Buddha statues, large Buddhist statues in monasteries and public places, and the influence of Buddhism. According to mythology, the pagoda is in the same place where the legendary Manjushree meets the lotus in the valley lake.
Pashupatinath stupa – the oldest temple of Lord Shiva, is of great value among Hindu pilgrims. You can find buildings that are older than life. Only Hindus can enter the temple. For others, you can enjoy the surroundings, including the crematorium, where the body burns to ashes. The unique characteristics of Sandhus: those who use the ashes of the body and fear are seen here as a unique feature.
Boudhanath Stupa – It is the largest Buddhist stupa in the world. We can see that the monks are busy singing their rituals around the temple. It is the most sacred pagoda outside of Tibet and has a high value in Buddhist pilgrimages. The white dome and the shiny golden needles symbolize peace and are unique to this stupa. The stupa is located on a three-story staircase and presents the exterior of the mandala.
