Garden Nature / Park
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.

  • Beautiful botanical garden with glittering fountains of water. I love how peaceful it is. Great for some quality time alone or with some friends if you both like reading books out in the garden. It is lovely for cinematography and photography but the last time I went there, they didn't let us use the camera and kept our tripod in the ticket counter. As far as I know, the place was built during The Rana Regime. It is the garden of Kaiser Mahal (which is now used as a public reference library)
  • Loved the place! It's like a beautiful island in the middle of dirty and polluted Kathmandu streets! Great place to hang out with friends or just read a book. It's very well maintained and all the plants, fountains and sculptures make it very cozy and diverse. Those 200 NPR were totally worth it!
  • Beautiful place to hang out with your friends if you need quite yet interesting place. It gives you such a mesmerising environment that you don't even think about leaving the place. You can even read novels, write stories sitting in the place. You can see little squirrel running here and there. The beautiful water fountain gives more beauty to the place.
  • The place is beautifully designed...the small fountains are more appealing in the night time when lights are up because lights make the place look more beautiful...it is full of green lawn grass and is excellent for clicking perfect pictures...also there is nice restaurant to fill ur tummy....that's all you can get in here. If you really wanna enjoy the calmness and beauty visit at early night hours.
  • A great place to spend an evening and just contemplate about your life. Would also be nice to visit with your family or loved ones and spend some quality time.
