  • One of the major attraction of this place, which has the tallest statue of Lord Shiva. This place offers beautiful view of Kathmandu valley if you are around sunset. There is a temple where you can offer your prayer to lord Shiva and Parvati.
  • Best spot to hangout near Kathmandu valley. Religiously important place having world's tallest (144 feet) statue of lord Shiva. You can enjoy the beautiful panaromic view of valley and mountain as well.
  • A very beatiful and peaceful area. Shiva devotee must visit this place.
  • Was much better in the beginning. High commercialization without better management will not help it stand out of other such spots.
  • One of the best religious place with largest(144 feet high) statue of lord Shiva and beautiful scene.
