Asan, Kathmandu

(130+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
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.

  • Well if you have a crowd phobia then Asan is definitely the wrong choice.... although it is not always crowded. But it is a good place to go and see... the heritage and the businesses and the customer...  more »
  • Narrow lanes, dust, lots of pedestrians jostling for space with motorcyclists trying to weave a path among the pedestrians = Asan!!  more »
  • Could spend hours just looking if that's your thing! So many sights, people and fascinating things to see. One of our highlights in Kathmandu visit over 6 days. People watching is a amazing!!  more »
