Pashupatinath Temple: Dedicated to Lord Shiva, this is Nepal’s most sacred Hindu shrine and one of the subcontinent’s great Shiva sites. The supreme holiness of the site stems from the Shiva linga enshrined in its main temple. It expresses the very essence of Hinduism as pilgrims, priests, devotes, temples, ashrams, images, inscriptions and cremation ghats intermingle with the rituals of daily life, all sprawled along the banks of the sacred Bagmati River. The temple’s origins are obscure. An inscription here dates from 477 AD, but the shrine may have stood there for 1000 years before that.
Bouddhanath Stupa: This great stupa is one of Nepal’s most distinctive monuments and one of the most important Buddhist sites in Nepal. With a diameter of over 100 meters, it is amongst the largest stupas in the world. There are a number of legends accounting for the stupa’s construction, but it is generally believed to date from the 5th century. All stupas contain holy relics and Bouddha is said to contain the remains of the past Buddha Kasyapa.
Swayambhunath Stupa: 6.5 kilometers west of Kathmandu, this great temple is just on the outskirts of Kathmandu. No one actually knows who built it. Many believe that the Lichavis constructed it while others believe that emperor Asoka had already visited it in the 3rd century. The Swayambhunath complex consists of a giant Stupa, a large ensemble of shrines and temples, and also includes a Tibetan monastery, a museum and a library. This site has two access points: a long stairway, claimed to have 365 steps, leading directly to the main platform of the temple, which is from the top of the hill to the east; and a car road around the hill from the south leading to the southwest entrance. The first sight on reaching the top of the stairway is the Vajra.
Kathmandu Durbar Square:
Kathmandu’s number one tourist attraction swarms with life. Though a few of the
square’s 50-plus monuments date from the 12th century, most are from the time
of the Malla Kings. Probably the most famous building here is the Kumari Bahal,
a building richly decorated with beautiful woodcarvings, which is home to the
Royal Kumari, the Living Goddess and a manifestation of the great goddess
Durga. An intriguing piece here is the 17th century stone inscription set into
the wall of the palace with writings in 15 languages. The Durbar square,
protected as an UNESCO world Heritage site, is the social, religious and urban
focal point of the city. There are also museums inside the palace building. In
