Places of Interest in this day tour itinerary in Kathmandu:

  • Boudhanath:

Boudhanath means ‘King of Wisdom’ and is the largest Stupa in the region of Asia. It is believed that all Buddhist pilgrims should visit it once in their lives. The stove is believed to have been built in the 5th century because it was the twelfth year and the drought so the king built the castle in the hope that this would help restore water and do so with the help of dewdrops – for this reason, also called Dew Stupa.

Nepal was the destination of Tibet and India – there has been trading with Tibet since ancient times. Traders traveling to Tibet often stopped to greet them with a stove and ask for a blessing on their safe return. The structure is commonly referred to as the mini Tibet as many Tibetans live near the trunk and reflect the Buddhist type. There are many monasteries around Bouddhanath – a center for learning and practicing Buddhism. Visitors have to get around the train directly as it kneels on the wheels of prayer because it brings more joy, lasting qualities, and luck. Heritage Site – don’t miss your day trip to Kathmandu.

  • Pashupatinath:

The name means’ Lord of All Creatures and God of Gods. It is a World Heritage Site and is located on the east side of Kathmandu on the banks of the sacred Bagmati River. The temple site began in the 5th / 6th century but the present temple was built in the 16th century. She is one of the most popular and important Shiva Shrines and all followers of the Hindu religion should visit the temple at least once in their lives.

During the Maha Shivaratri festival, the temple is filled with devotees who serve the Linga stone in the form of Shiva. Non-Hindus are not allowed to enter the main temple but they can still see the two-tier temple on the east side of the river and see the funeral processions on the shore. Platforms on the holy river Bagmati are known for bathing and forcing dead Hindu corpses. It is a privilege for Hindus cremation here as it is believed to ensure that the soul rests peacefully and is kept away from the cycle of rebirth.

  • Swayambhunath:

It is believed that the first stem was found 2000 years ago but the current stem is said to have been built after the 14th century. Swayambhunath means ‘Existing Building Alone’. It is often referred to as the ‘Monkey Temple’ by westerners as there are many monkeys crowding the area. Devotees turn prayer wheels and monkeys playing around the stupa to make the area attractive and alive.

The spectacular view of Kathmandu Village from the stupa is just breathtaking. Legend says that when Kathmandu village was a large lake and there were a lotus flower and a white light in the middle of the lake. In the Buddha’s version, Majushree, Bodhisattwa, came from China to extract water and the lotus flower settled and settled where the stove is now. In the Hindu tradition, the lake was abolished by Lord Krishna.

On the eastern side of the trunk, there is a long flight up the hill. It is a beautiful pagoda style temple dedicated to Mother God god Harati. Around all the complexities, there are sites of paintings and statues of Buddhist and Hindu deities depicting the religious side of them. Swayambhunath really deserves to be listed as a World Heritage Site and another great place to visit for your day trip to Kimmandu.

  • Kathmandu Durbar Square:

This lies in the heart of the city. The locals of Kathmandu call it Hanuman Dhoka as it is named after Monkey God, Hanuman. At the main entrance to the palace, you can see a picture of a Monkey God dressed in red paint. Durbar Square is a World Heritage Site and history says that its construction dates back to the 9/10 century, during the reign of King Gunakama Dev. She was a true devotee of Kali, the goddess of terror, her main weapon of the sword – hence the formation of a square in the form of a sword.

The complex contains a magnificent royal palace and is surrounded by more than a dozen temples dedicated to various Hindu gods and goddesses. This area was the throne until the 19th century. Today, the palace is used as a guest museum and a royal palace in Nepal. The last king was crowned here in 2001. One of the attractions of this square is the living God – The Kumari, a young girl who is going through the strongest election. He acknowledges the greetings of visitors from the window of his head and is believed to have been constructed by the construction of just one tree called Kastamandap (the origin of the name – Kathmandu). The surrounding area has temples dating to the 15th and 18th centuries. Now the day we can see more restoration happens as the world of April 2015 severely damaged the site. It is certainly quite safe to visit to witness the old palace in Kathmandu a sightseeing tour.
