Glimpses of Kathmandu

This is a short trip with glimpses of Kathmandu Valley that lets you explore ancient temples and religious shrines of the three medieval kingdoms, namely Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Patan city. Tradition tirelessly repeats itself in a culture. It remains seeped into an ancient history created by the kings of past generations, and religious doctrines are strictly adhered to to this very day.

Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, you will have the unique opportunity of visiting Kumari Temple. In Kumari Temple, people are receiving blessings from our living Godess, Kumari. This is a very old tradition and culture of worshiping the human form of the Godess Taleju. Then you will visit the holiest of Hindu shrines, Pashupatinath. Pashupatinath is the Shiva, one of the trinity and the guardian (patron) deity of the Hindus. As you approach the cremation areas of the temple, you will witness the Hindu ritual of cremation. Tour the Buddhist stupa at Boudhanath, a monument of historical and religious importance to Buddhists the world over and a center of Tibetan culture in Nepal.

Patan, the oldest city in the Katmandu Valley, has a historic square located in the city of Patan, Nepal. It is known for its beautiful architecture and intricate carvings, showcasing the rich cultural heritage of the region. The square is home to several temples and palaces, including the famous Krishna Mandir, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
