Swyombhunath stupa is the oldest stupa in Nepal residing at the hillock in the middle of the Kathmandu Valley. The sacred Manis, prayer wheels, flags, serene atmosphere of the Swyombhunath Stupa fascinates everyone here. We can see a huge stupa with tremendous eyes of Buddha printed on these two eyes resemble the light, wisdom, and peace. This stupa is very special for both Hindu and Buddhist followers.  The stupa is encircled with a lush forest where we find numerous monkeys. So that, we call Swyombhunath Stupa a Monkey Temple. Besides, we can capture the mesmerizing view of Kathmandu valley from Swyombbunath Stupa.

Pashupatinath is a world-famous Hindu Temple located at the bank of the Bagmati river. No other followers except Hindu are allowed to enter the temple. God Shiva is worshipped here. On the occasion of Shivaratri, people come from the world and worship god Shiva in different ways.  We also can observe holy cremation while visiting this temple. This is the only cremation site for Hindu and Buddhist in the valley. The surrounding of the temple is magnificent.

Bouddhanath is the world's largest stupa located at Bouddha, Kathmandu which is northeast from central Thamel. The massive stupa and the classical houses around are astounding to experience. Likewise, the souvenir shops and restaurants make our visit to Bouddhanath stupa more convenient.

Patan Durbar Square, actually, at the moment,  is on the way to renovate which was devastated by April 2015 earthquake. It still takes a few months to see the original Patan Durbar square.
