Escape the city hubbub and retreat to Garden of Dreams, a peaceful garden complex renowned for its scenic pavilions. Also known as the “Garden of Six Seasons," it was built in 1920 for Field Marshall Kaiser Sumsher Rana and was abandoned after his death in the 1960s. Today, restored with help of the Austrian government, it remains a landmark of Kathmandu and a popular spot for a relaxing stroll. Roaming the lush gardens, you can admire Edwardian-style inspired fountains, birdhouses, gazebos, and other picturesque decorations.

  • I like the way it is and the location as well, very good place to hang around with your friends. In the heart of the city you find such a cool and clean place. It is a great place to go and make your mood good in the garden. You can see many people coming here and all of them are in there own world. I have been there with my laptop and written some great articles as well that means its a peaceful place. You can also take your loved ones over there as a pair and its a great place to take your partner.
  • After dark at the restaurant for dinner was a idyllic experience. Excellent food and service. The garden takes on a whole new atmosphere when the day time crowd has gone. Quite, still and peaceful. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
  • It is a nice place if you want to enjoy your day in a natural environment away from the crowd. The place is good to sit and read a book or just to chat with friends and family. The garden has very nice architecture and family environment
  • It's a lovely place to enjoy calmness in the middle of all the city chaos. It's not a huge place but a nice little spot with lots of greenery. There is also a couple of cafes inside to enjoy a nice cup of coffee. All in all a great place to relax.
  • Beautiful place in the midst of an urban concrete jungle that provides the essence of natural beauty. Soothes the stressed mind and body. Definitely the place to visit with friends and family and one can spend many hours here.
