Changu Narayan, Bhaktapur

4.5
Centuries old and seemingly frozen in time, Changu Narayan represents one of the oldest temples in Nepal and an exquisite example of Licchavi-era architecture. Dedicated to the god Vishnu, the temple sits at the top of a hill surrounded by a forest. Walk inside to see a figure of Vishnu's consort Garuda, or stroll around the building to spot sculptures relating to the god's various incarnations.

  • This small village (even if rather large finally ^ ^) is very friendly. Along the way to get to the top we meet full of beautiful landscape but also full of Nice great person with whom we exchange a few words. Once get up, that's a great stupa which we welcome. The place is very pretty even if traces of the earthquake are well presented.

  • Changu Narayan 11/27/2017 halfway up a mountain, climb the Hill about 5 minutes gentle approach from the parking lot. 10 am this morning from what was trying to be quiet, but outing people overflowed during the return journey. And the Buddha is depicted on the banknotes. When who lined doors is the said photographs.

  • The system is somewhat away from Bakthapur, a ride worth absolutely. The facility is beautiful and the buildings are worth seeing.
