  • Ornate, exquisite, detailed, and beautiful. Easily accessible as it is close to both Durbar Square and Thamel.  more »
  • Retreat into the Interior of the building from main street to temple is quite larger, the number of believers to worship was ringing off the hook. What do Hindu temples in pagan far the saw only the appearance is not sure.

  • Asan Tole along and then went to the little West. I don't think, because it was surrounded by the construction fence under construction located in Asan Tole along as it happens, is a torrent of rainy day back in Temple. From Asan Tole in the road on the left, in fearfully so carefully look at the building on the left, walking along the small stature gap right on paper with the entrance of the temple, there was Temple. Unlike other temples, around the temple is surrounded by chain wall. Hindus who was allowed to enter chain wall of the temple enclosure, and don't be rude, don't think the thickness so that people of faith in, the hands are together. Looking carefully and found joy is different. Look for us.

Where to stay in Kathmandu

Only a few establishments in Kathmandu suffered severe damage in the 2015 earthquake, which means that you can choose from a wide range of sleeping options. From luxurious hotels to inexpensive but cozy lodges, the city offers a suitable place for every type of budget. The neighborhood of Thamel contains most accommodations favored by foreign visitors, including basic guesthouses, budget hotels, and boutique establishments offering deluxe suites. For some of the least expensive options, look along Durbar Marg, a busy street just a few blocks from Thamel.
