Places to Visit in your Kathmandu Tours:
: The largest Stupas in South Asia is Bouddha Stupa and it has become
the central point of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. The white mound looms thirty-six
meters overhead. The stupa is located on the ancient trade route to Tibet, and Tibetan
merchants rested and offered prayers here for many centuries. When refugees entered
Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many of them decided to live around Bouddha. They
established many gompas, and the "Little Tibet" of Nepal was born. This "Little
Tibet" is still the best place in the Valley to observe Tibetan lifestyle. Monks
walk about in maroon robes. Tibetans walk with prayer wheels in their hands, and
the rituals of prostration are presented to the Buddha as worshippers circumambulate
the stupa on their hands and knees, bowing down to their lord.

famous Hindu temple standing on the banks of the Bagamati River, between the airport
and Boudha. This Shiva temple on the subcontinent draws numerous devotees, sadhus
and holy men from all around the world. In-front of the temple there is a bull known
as Nandi facing towards the temple. Only Hindus are allowed to enter the temple
and no one is allowed to take photographs of the Lord Shiva inside the temple. Bagamati
River Bank on the side of Pashupati, is also a popular place for cremation.
