Highlights of Kathmandu Day Tour

Kathmandu Durbar Square

Locally, it is regarded as the Hanuman Dhoka Palace that literally connects the Hindu mythology monkey deity to the  Hanuman. There’s a large Hanuman monument built at the palace’s front door.

The temples and buildings with intriguing design are the main attractions in this area, working all over the doors and windows and pillars. They refer back to the 14th century and were old rulers ‘ crowning areas. The whole palace was a residence for the Kathmandu kings.

Swoyambhunath Stupa

Its place is a ideal point of view offering a wide-angle perspective of the vibrant valley below. Furthermore, Swyambhunath is a ideal replication of the cultural harmony of Nepal. There is a big dome devoted to Lord Buddha with a large golden pinnacle. The miniature temple and stupa constructions offer the location a Lilliput vibe.

Due to the number of monkeys around the region, Swoyambhunath is often regarded as the ‘ monkey temple. ‘ There is a commonly thought myth that when ancient Manjushree encountered a lotus when the valley used to be a lake, the stupa stands at the same location.
