Asan, Kathmandu

(3.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Pore over the broad variety of produce, spices, housewares, and clothing at Asan. The bustling market, spread over streets and narrow alleyways, was once strategically positioned along the India-Tibet trade route and has operated for centuries. Today it contains everything from food to textiles and merchandise, which you can peruse at your leisure among the locals who frequent the market. Various temples and shrines dot the streets of the bazaar, most notably the three-tiered temple to the goddess of abundance, in the southeast corner. Plan to explore and navigate the extremely narrow roads on foot. Put Asan on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kathmandu tourist route planner.

  • We went here to buy kitchen supplies and were so pleased we decided to go! It is a more local bizarre with some lovely temples along the streets. It felt like we soaked up a bit more of the local cult...  more »
  • This street is lively and detaches from Thamel to one side. Here if the business and a street market where the Nepali realmenente made their purchases are. Very colorful and crowded. Here if the best photos at dusk, already without shadows.

  • One of the important elements are located in the Kathmandu Valley's appeal, and with great gusto. In addition to essential goods, food items, clothing and people's lives, and waited for an important religious necessity for them and interesting. They walk every day.
