Pashupatinath is the biggest temple premises of Kathmandu Valley under UNESCO World Heritage Sites Tour. It includes several temples squares and Cremation sites. Situated at the bank of the Bagmati river, it lies at the minimum proximity from International Airport. One must visit Pashupatinath Area to complete sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley. This main temple of Pashupatinath is the holy deity of the Hindu. Most of the time ongoing, funeral and cremation process of Hindu people at the western bank of Bagmati River could be a new experience for you.

People believe that the experience of the “Jyotirlinga” resemblance of Lord Shiva ignites one’s spirituality and purity. The architecture, visitors themselves, Hindu rituals are other attractions of the site. Your guide will narrate you about the Historical, architectural, cultural, and traditional aspects of the sites.

Bouddhanath Stupa

The Bouddhanath situates approximately 7 kilometers away from the main city of Kathmandu at the northern side of Pashupatinath temple. It is a Buddhist Shrine which is very famous in Tibet. It has a special connection with Tibet since the beginning of religion in Tibet. As it occurred by the side of the trail connecting Kathmandu with Tibet, the stupa area has always been a rest point for the Tibetan people visiting Nepal.

It is home to one of the most important stupas of Nepal. It was built in the 5th century and is the largest of its kind. Architecturally, the stupa is very important and beautiful. Bouddhanath Stupa is the holy destination of the Buddhist followers; however, the unique design and the décor of the temple make this place the famous site to visit for each and every person. The prayer flags, incense, and prayer candles lit up the temple magnificently.

Swayambhunath Stupa

Finally, you will be visiting another most important Buddhist site in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Tour. Almost all the tourist visiting Nepal plans to roam around Swayambhunath during their stay in Nepal. Monkey Temple is another name for Swayambhunath Stupa due to the abundant number of monkeys found in its surroundings. The premises of Swayambhunath includes several monuments and temples due to which, it is the symbol of religious harmony. The Hindus and Buddhists equally worshipped by both followers.

The majestic Stupa lies at the hilltop from where you can see the picturesque view of Kathmandu in a 360-degree angle. Based on the local story and Buddhist mythological literature, the existence of the temple area is older than the valley itself. According to Swayambhu Purana, the temple emerged automatically once Manjushree diverted the water from the valley. We recommend visiting Swayambhunath in the evening to experience the sunset view from there.
A private car with an English speaking government licensed Tour Guide will serve you for this tour.
