Historical Sites in Kathmandu Valley.

Many of these sites are listed in the UNESCO world heritage sites. You can dive deep into the history of Nepal by visiting these places which are the reflection of Nepal culture, art and architectures. Pashupati Nath The Pashupati Nath temple of Kathmandu is a famous and sacred Hindu temple complex that is situated at the banks of the Bagmati river located approximately 5 kilometers north-east of Kathmandu. Built using pagoda style architecture, the temple houses the shivalinga (statue) of Lord Pashupati Nath. The temple and its surrounding area contain a large amount of small temples and statues of other Hindu gods and goddess. The other attraction here is the bank of the Bagmati River which is the cremation site of Hindus in Kathmandu. At noon the temple hosts a grand Aarati (prayer) at the bank of the Bagmati River which is really surreal. The temple also contains the statue of the Birupakshya , an ancestor of the kirati people, one of the earliest dynasty of Nepal. Durbar squares of Kathmandu. They are the jewels on the crown that is the Kathmandu valley. Considered one the most ancient areas of Nepal, all three (Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan) sites hosts a spectacular number of temples, literature, arts and architecture which reflects the culture of Nepa. The palace used to belongs to the ancient Malla dynasty. As such, the square remains the traditional heart of the old town. These areas carry the legacy of Nepal. These areas are easily accessible to everyone who wants to visit and is a must visit experience for everyone. Changu Narayan Located on a magnificent hilltop commanding a fantastic view of Kathmandu valley, Changu Narayan temple is considered to be one of the oldest temples of Nepal. Situated at the top of the Changu hill, 8 miles east of Kathmandu and 6km north of Bhaktapur the temple is a milestone in Nepali temple architecture. The Kashmiri king gave his daughter, Champak, in marriage to the prince of Bhaktapur. Hence the Changu Narayan Temple is named after her. It is easily accessible via bus and taxi. The temple area has the added bonus of a small tourist town being created on the steep walk up to the gates. Narayanhiti Palace Museum This magnificent palace which once served as the residence and principal workplace of the reigning monarch of the kingdom of Nepal is now a major tourist attraction in Kathmandu. After the 2006 revolution toppled the monarchy, the newly elected assembly declared Nepal as a republic country and King Gyanendra was forced to vacate the palace, which is now turned into a public museum. Built in 1963 by late King Mahendra, this palace is a stunning piece of Nepali architect. The palace reflects the life style of the royal family who once ruled over Nepal. The palace is located at the center of Kathmandu and is a must visit location for everyone.
