After breakfast drive to Kathmandu durbar square, (UNESCO World heritage sights) The Kathmandu Durbar Square is the historic place that was also a politically important site until recently. The Kings of Nepal were crowned and their coronation ceremony was solemnized in this durbar square. The Durbar Square, with its old temples and palaces, epitomizes the religious and cultural life of the people. The temples, monuments, and palaces are believed to have been built by the Malla kings of the Medieval Nepal.
The Durbar Square is called the Hanumandhoka, the Monkey God’s Door in Nepal, named so after the Monkey God Hanuman. The area is also known as Basantpur, the place for celebrations and festivals. The UNESCO enlisted the Durbar Square area as the World Heritage Site in 1979.
The famous temples and monuments around the area are Taleju Bhavani, Kal Bhairav, Nautale Durbar, Coronation Nasal Chowk, and the Gaddi Baithak.
Other famous landmarks around the area are the Temple of Living Goddess Kumari, the wooden temple of Kasthamandap, Ashok Vinayak. There are also museums inside the Durbar Square Palace.
Next destination is Swoyambhunath stupa. (UNESCO World heritage site in 1979) The Swoyambhunath area possesses the stupa but many temple, shrines, Tibetan monasteries, statues of different gods. There is a small forest nearby the stupa which homes the red macaque monkey that mostly feed on the items offered by the devotees. Some of the Tibetan exiles in Nepal live nearby the Stupa. The Buddhists visit the Stupa for religious region, but everyone interested in mysticism, tantra, spirituality, ancient sculptures, & fine arts should not miss visiting the site.
Very much like Bouddhanath, Swoyambhunath serves as a major historical landmark for most of Nepal's Buddhists. It was built over 2,500 years ago and is set on top of a steep hill which requires a pretty steep climb. Various flower vendors display their merchandise at the foot for visitors.
The place is sometimes called "Monkey Temple" and for good reason. Nepal makes for very conducive playgrounds for monkeys and the Swoyambhunath temple and its forest area make a good home for the rhesus Nepalis.
After this we go to see Patan Durbar Square. (UNESCO World heritage site in 1979) You can have lunch at Patan Durbar Square at local restaurant. Patan is the place to see the ancient art as well as beautiful sites of Durbar Square. Patan likes to recall its old name LALITPUR (known as city of beauty). Above all, it remains a proud city of artisans. Patan produces nearly all Nepal’s fine metal work.
