Kathmandu: Personalized sightseeing tour "Glimpse of
Kathmandu with our experienced and fun guides - spend the
day walking and listening to insider stories about
Kathmandu. The guided sightseeing tour under ‘Glimpse of
Kathmandu’ covers Bouddhanath Stupa and Kathmandu Durbar
Square with food tasting at restaurants around our points
Bouddhanath (World Heritage Site): This is the
world's biggest Stupa located about 2 kilometers to the
north of Pashupatinath Temple. This colossal edifice is
known by the name of Bouddhanath, the god of wisdom. It is
difficult to assign a period to its creation, as some
believe that it was built during the reign of either Shiva
Dev or AnshuVerma in the 7th century AD. The design is
much like the Swayambhu Stupa, except that the spire
consists of squares diminishing in size successively,
instead of circles. Bouddhanath attracts Buddhist pilgrims
from all over the world.
Kathmandu Durbar Square (World Heritage Site):
Kathmandu Durbar Square is an overwhelming frenzy of art
and architecture. The medieval palace complex is erected
in different styles right beside the Kumari Temple. The
enormous courtyard is locally known as the Basantapur
Durbar, or Nautale Durbar, and the locality is called
Basantapur. The square was constructed in 1770 AD upon the
initiation of King Prithivi Narayan Shah to commemorate
his successful conquest of the Kathmandu Valley in 1768
AD. The massive pagoda-like structure in the centre houses
the tutelary deity of the Malla Kings. The palace building
is a maze of stone-paved quadrangles. Coronation
ceremonies, until recently, were performed in the main
courtyard, the NyasalChowk. The palace façade is a mosaic
of intricately carved windows, shaded by gently sloping
roofs of shimmering brown tiles.
