– Pashupatinath Temple – Baudhanath Stupa – Swyambhunath Stupa
Pashupatinath temple is more than just a religious destination. It is a combination of religion, art, and culture. It offers peace and devotion. Hundreds of rituals are performed here every day. The temple premises are an open museum. This national treasure was designated a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1979. The temple is an essential destination for art historians. It displays a variety of temple design, some of which are Dome, Pagoda, and Shikhara styles.
Additionally, there are varieties of statues and sculptures made out of stone, metal, and wood. The door and pillars around the temple area are carved in beautiful shapes of deities and mythical animals.
Bouddhanath is among the largest stupas in South Asia, and it has become the focal point of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. The white mound looms thirty-six meters overhead. The stupa is on the ancient trade route to Tibet. When the refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many of them decided to live around Bouddhanath. By establishing many gompas, monasteries and cultural centres the « Little Tibet » of Nepal were given a new name to Boudhanath area.
The Swayambhunath Stupa is one of the crowning glories of Kathmandu Valley architecture. This perfectly proportioned monument rises through a whitewashed dome to a gilded spire, from where four iconic faces of the Buddha stare out across the valley in the cardinal directions.
