This first day we will be visit Kathmandu heritage place. In the morning we will visit Syambunath temple as a know monkey temple(Swayambhu literally means "self-existent one". According to translations from an inscription dating back to 460 A.D., it was built by King Manadeva and by the 13th century, Swayambhunath had developed into an important center of Buddhism. The stupa sits atop the hill and the exceedingly steep stone steps leading up to the shrine is quite a challenge. However, there is also a road going up almost to the top and you can drive up. A large number of Buddhists and Hindus alike visit Swayambhunaththrough out the day. Swayambhu is perhaps the best place to observe religious harmony in Nepal.)

Day 03: Exploring BhaktapurDarbar Square ~ Pasupati Temple

After having breakfast at Thamel we will be drive 1 hour to BhaktapurDarbar(The Bhaktapur Durbar Square tour  has innumerable temples and architectural showpieces. The palace of 55 windows built in the 17th century was a masterpiece of wood carving. The stone temple of Batsala Devi is full of intricate carvings. There is a bronze bell called Barking Bell. The Golden Gate, which is the entrance to the main courtyard of the palace of 55 windows is said to be most beautiful and richly moulded specimen of its kind in the entire world. The Lion Gate (a massive gate dating back to1696 AD) has two statues of lions. The National Art Gallery contains ancient and medieval paintings depicting Tantrism of various periods and descriptions. Nyatpola, the five storey Pagoda temple, built in 1702 A.D was the tallest temple in the country. It is famous for its massive structure and subtle workmanship. BhairavNath Temple – dedicated to Lord Bhairav, god of terror, is built close to Nyatpola and famous for its artistic grandeur.

After spending great time at Bhakatapur we drive to PasupatiTemple(Pashupati Temple – a replica of Pashupatinath is widely noted for the erotic carvings in its struts. Dattatrayas temple was built in 1427 A.D. And has been claimed to be built from the trunk of a single tree. There is also Pottery Square that preserves the world’s oldest pottery profession.

The Temple stands in the center of the town of Deopatan, in the middle of an open courtyard. It is a square, two-tiered pagoda temple built on a single-tier plinth, and it stands 23.6 meters above the ground. Richly ornamented gilt and silver-plated doors are on all sides.

Pashaputi Temple's extensive grounds include many other old and important temples, shrines and statues. South of the temple, for instance, is Chadeshvar, an inscribed Licchavilinga from the 7th century, and north of the temple is a 9th-century temple of Brahma. On the south side of Pashupati temple is the Dharmashila, a stone where sacred oaths are taken, and pillars with statues of various Shah kings.

AryaGhat, dating from the early 1900s, is of special importance because it is the only place where lustral water for Pashupatinath Temple can be obtained and it is where members of the royal family are cremated. The main cremation site is BhasmeshvarGhat, which is the most-used cremation site in the Kathmandu Valley. The preferred bathing spot for women is the GauriGhat, to the north.

It is one of the three Durbar Squares in the Kathmandu Valley, all of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. One of its attraction is the ancient royal palace where the Malla Kings of Lalitpur resided. In the center of Patan, at the Intersection of its main crossroads is the medieval Palace square, locally known as Mangal Bazaar for its Sanskrit connotation of  being auspicious, or simply as “Mangah” its root in Old Newari meaning "Center".

After enjoy your time at patan we will go BhaushanathStupafor sunset View(The first stupa at Bodhnath was built sometime after AD 600, when the Tibetan king, SongtsenGampo, converted to Buddhism. In terms of grace and purity of line, no other stupa in Nepal comes close to Bodhnath. From its whitewashed dome to its gilded tower painted with the all-seeing eyes of the Buddha, the monument is perfectly proportioned. The 36-meter-high stupa of Boudhanath is one of the largest stupas in South Asia. With countless monasteries surrounding it, Boudhanath is the center of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. This is one of the few places in the world where Tibetan Buddhist culture is accessible and unfettered, and the lanes around the stupa are crammed with monasteries and workshops producing butter lamps, ceremonial horns, Tibetan drums, monks’ headgear and the other accessories essential for Tibetan Buddhist life.
