Pashupatinath Temple: Dedicated to Hindu Lord Shiva, this is Nepal’s most sacred Hindu shrine and one of the South Asia’s great Shiva shrines. 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, devotees, 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 however obscure. An inscription here dates from 477 AD, but the shrine may have stood there for 1000 years before that.
Swayambhunath Stupa: Situated 6.5 kilometers West of Kathmandu, this great temple is just on the outskirts of Kathmandu. No one actually knows who built it but many believe that the Lichhavis 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.
Bhaktapur Durbar Square: Much of Bhaktapur Durbar Square was destroyed in the 1934 earthquake and appears much emptier than those of Kathmandu or Patan. Amongst its many attractions are the substitute shrines for the four great Indian pilgrimage sites and the Golden Gate. This is the most famous piece of art in all Nepal, an exquisite monument of gilded metalwork constructed in 1753.
Nagarkot: Situated at 2300 meters, on the valley’s eastern side, Nagarkot offers an excellent view of the Himalayas including Mount Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and Manaslu mountains.
