KATHMANDU : 02 NIGHTS

KATHMANDU

After breakfast proceed for a full day sight seeing tour Swoyambhunath Stupa, Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa. SWOAYMBHUNATH STUPA: The Buddhist stupa of Swoyambhunath is situated on the top of a hill west of the city. Swoyambhunath literally means self originated god. This 2000 years old Stupa, is one of the most sacred Buddhist religious sites in Nepal. The huge symbolic representation of Buddhahood signifies five elements through which the living being are made up of – Air, Water, fire, Earth & Ether. The thirteen steps going up spirally are the steps of wisdom, rossing each spires successfully leads an individual towards the ultimate goal i.e. to attain enlightenment to liberate human kind from sufferings. PASHUPATINATH TEMPLE:Not only is Pashupatinath the most important Hindu temple in Nepal it’s one of the most important Shiva temple on the subcontinent and draws numerous devotees from all over India each year. The temple is dedicated to lord Shiva who is the destroyer and creator of the Hindu pantheon and appears in many forms. His terrible forms are probably best known, particularly his appearance in Nepal as the cruel and destructive Bhairabs, but he also has peaceful incarnations including those of Mahadev and Pashupatinath, the lord of the beasts. As the temple is located on the bank of the Bagmati River, which is considered to be the holy River, therefore Hindu people prefer to be cremated here- as such visiting this temple would enable our visitors to know the religious formalities that are being carried out before and after the cremation. BOUDHANATH: On the eastern side of Kathmandu, just north of the Airport stands a huge Stupa of Bodhnath, the largest Stupa in Nepal and one of the biggest in the world. It is a popular religious hub of considerable population of Tibetans many of these Tibetans are refugees who fled their country following the unsuccessful uprising against the Chinese invaders in 1959.They have been energetic and successful in the intervening years, as the large houses in and around Bodhnath Testify. This is one of the few places in the world where Tibetan culture is both accessible and unhindered Read more

It is sometimes referred to as Lalitpur,the city of beauty.

MAHABOUDHA TEMPLE: Despite its height, the Temple of the Thousand Buddhas, or Mahaboudha Temple, is not immediately visible as it is tightly surrounded by other buildings. This shikhara – style temple is modeled after the original Temple at Bodhigaya in India.

In the intervening period the woman’s descendants settled beside the new lake and erected a temple dedicated to Barahi Bhagwati, which is located on the other side of the Lake. BINDYABASINI TEMPLE: Pokhara’s main cultural attraction, a quiet temple complex more noteworthy for its sweeping mountain views than its collection of shrines. The featured deity, Bindyabasini, is an incarnation of Kali the mother goddess in her blood thirsty aspect, who is represented by Saligram an auspicious stone as per the Hindu Mythology. Animal sacrifices are common at this Temple, particular on Saturday and on the ninth day of the biggest festival “Dashain” of Nepal.
