Kathmandu Valley Sightseeing
Today’s captivating journey encompasses a visit to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, each offering a unique blend of history, spirituality, and architectural marvels. Our sightseeing adventure can be tailored to align with your interests, and the skilled city guide from TMG will expertly plan the route for your exploration.
Kathmandu Durbar Square
Departing from your hotel, our first destination is Kathmandu Durbar Square. Situated at a distance from your accommodation, this square once served as a ceremonial site and the palace where coronations of kings took place in bygone eras. Today, it stands as a palace-museum, providing a glimpse into the lives of royalty. As you wander amidst the ancient monuments, temples, and statues that date back to the 17th and 18th centuries, you’ll step back in time.
Swayambhunath (Monkey Temple)
Our next stop requires a bit of preparation, as we ascend to the lofty heights of Swayambhunath, also known as the Monkey Temple. Perched at a significant altitude and boasting over 2,000 years of history, this stupa is a cornerstone of Buddhist culture in Nepal. Its captivating allure includes a remarkable likeness of Lord Buddha on every side, while its base showcases the stonework of the 5 Dhyani Buddhas – Vairocana, Ratnasambhava, Amitabha, Amoghasiddhi, and Aksobhya, each symbolizing Lord Buddha’s wisdom. Visitors from across the globe flock to this sacred site for its breathtaking panoramic views of Kathmandu Valley.
Our journey then takes us to the venerable Pashupatinath Temple, an ancient Hindu pilgrimage site. While it is as old as time itself, this temple receives meticulous care and renovation from the Hindu Committees of Nepal. The temple’s surroundings have witnessed recent additions and improvements. Pashupatinath holds immense significance as the most vital temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and is located in close proximity to Kathmandu’s heart. Access to the main gate of Pashupatinath Temple is exclusively granted to Hindus, but as a visitor, you can admire its splendid architecture from a distance. If fortune smiles upon you, you may even witness the sacred Hindu cremation rituals taking place along the banks of the Bagmati River.
Our final destination is the magnificent Bouddhanath Stupa, another revered site and one of the holiest pilgrimage destinations for Buddhists. Resembling Swayambhunath, this stupa boasts a gleaming white dome. Myth and legend shroud its origins; some believe it holds the remains of Kasyapa Buddha (a Buddha incarnation), while others contend it safeguards the relics of Lord Buddha himself. An intriguing feature encircles the stupa’s base – 108 small images of the Dhyani Buddha Amitabha. These intricate carvings offer a captivating spectacle and can be admired at any time during your visit.
