Go Nepal, Kathmandu Nepal
Kathmandu is known as the "City of Temples," and it has five UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The Kathmandu Valley's cultural heritage is represented by seven groups of monuments and buildings that showcase the full range of historic and artistic achievements for which the Kathmandu Valley is world famous. The Durbar Squares of Hanuman Dhoka (Kathmandu), Patan, and Bhaktapur are among the seven, as are the Buddhist stupas of Swayambhu and Bauddhanath, and the Hindu temples of Pashupati and Changu Narayan.
You will mostly enjoy Kathmandu because of the beautiful mountain scenery you will be able to see. Whether you're riding a rickshaw through the traffic-choked alleyways of the old town, admiring the medieval temples, or dodging trekking touts in the backpacker district of Thamel, Kathmandu can be intoxicating, amazing, and exhausting.
The world heritage tour in Kathmandu gives us a close-up look at Nepal. Nepal is not only a showcase of the Nepalese people's rich culture, but it is also a nation of architectural marvels and heritage sites. This tour takes you to four temples: Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pashupatinath, Bauddhanath, and Swayambhunath, all of which are religious and culturally significant to Nepalese people.
The Kathmandu Durbar Square houses the palaces of the city's rulers, the Malla and Shah Kings. In addition to these palaces, the square is surrounded by quadrangles that reveal courtyards and temples. It is one of three Durbar Squares in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley that are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Swayambhu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dates back to antiquity. A 5th century stone inscription is the earliest written record of the Great Stupa of Swayambhu. The stupa, which has been honored by kings, monks, and pilgrims alike, has been restored and repaired on numerous occasions.
The precise date of construction of Pashupatinath is unknown. Despite this, Pashupatinath is considered Kathmandu's oldest Hindu temple. Because of the large monkey population that lives in the area, it is popularly known as the Monkey Temple among foreigners.
The story of the Bouddha Stupa is significant and incredibly inspiring. The Boudhanath Buddhist stupa dominates the skyline. The ancient Stupa is one of the world's largest. Due to the influx of large populations of Tibetan refugees, over 50 Tibetan Gompas (Monasteries) have been built around Boudhanath. Boudhanath was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. It is, along with Swayambhunath, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Kathmandu area.
