Patan Durbar Square

The Kathmandu valley consists of three main cities Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur. Before the unification of the greater Nepal done by King Prithvi Narayan Shah in the 18th century, these three cities were independently ruled as a separate kingdom. These old cities of Kathmandu Valley have Durbar Square (Royal Palace) to each.

Among them, Patan Durbar Square exhibits the fine wood and metal art and craft on the struts, windows, and doors of the palaces. There are beautiful courtyards in the palace peripheral where you will see the fine art and architecture of typical Nepalese Artists.

Pashupatinath Temple

Pashupatinath temple is the holiest Hindu temple in the whole of Nepal where devotees far from India and other Hindu people come to visit these holy sites. Pashupati means the Lord of the beast and people believe that if once in a lifetime they visit the temple, in their next life they don’t need to rebirth as a beast or animal. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and the main sanctum of the temple is decorated with the Shiva Lingam. Non-Hindu people are not allowed to enter the main temple and only could peep from the outside. But one can visit the whole temple peripheral from the viewpoint which lies opposite of the temple across the river.

The temple is situated near the holy river of Bagmati and the cremation activities are done aside from the holy river by the Hindu people. You will see a series of white temples across the river to the opposite side of the main temple. These stone-made temples are the shelter for the Sadus who are the followers of Lord Shiva.

The stupa is decorated with golden polish on the harmonica and the white dome constructed on the mandala shape of the base and small mani wheel surround it. The stupa is the center of the Buddhist followers but non-Buddhist also worship these sites because in Nepal people respect each other religion.
