    One of the biggest stupas in the world, Boudhanath is a UNESCO World Heritage site that has stood as a symbol of Buddhist faith for thousands of years, towering over the nearby town as a huge mandala of calm and beauty as well as huge eyes. Hundreds of tourists and pilgrims circle the stupa counterclockwise every day while the Buddha watches over them. It is a very popular tourist spot for both foreigners and locals.

    Kathmandu Durbar Square

    In the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal, there are three squares, one of which is Kathmandu Durbar Square, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Buddhist and Hindu ceremonies, sacred rites, royal celebrations, and kingly coronations take place frequently in Durbar Square. Kathmandu Durbar Square, which is surrounded by fountains, historic statues, tiny ponds, and the Mohan Chok and Sundari Chok courtyards, is a meditative, sacred setting for individuals looking for spiritual direction. 

    Pashupatinath Temple

    Pashupatinath Temple is one of Nepal's most revered Hindu temples. The most significant temple is devoted to Lord Shiva. this temple is situated on both sides of the holy Bagmati river and the outskirts of Kathmandu city. every year a huge number of people visit this holy site to get the blessing from lord shiva and celebrate Shivaratri, known as the night of lord shiva. which is one of the biggest celebrations in Nepal. 

    Patan Durbar Square

    Our ancestors carved and etched magnificent works of art and architecture on wood and metal, and they now display them in profusion in the Patan Durbar Square, which is situated in the heart of Lalitpur District. This city is well known for the temples, shrines, statues, monuments, festivals, culture, etc. that display the artistry of our forefathers. Even today, we can hear the tapping of tiny hammers being used by artists to construct various idols and ornaments as we walk through Patan's little pathways.

    Bhaktapur Durbar Square

    The primary tourist attraction of Bhaktapur is the Bhaktpur Durbar Square. It has four district squares: Pottery Square, Dattatreya Square, Taumadhi Square, and Durbar Square.  The 55 window palace is among the most interesting buildings in this area. It was constructed in 1427 AD by Malla King Yaksha Malla, and King Bhupendra modified it in the 17th century.

    Changunarayan Temple

    It is asserted that the two-story Vishnu temple was not constructed in the shikhara or pagoda styles. But it is built in the pagoda style.

      Thank you for the excellent service.

      We had a great experience in Nepal with Luxury Holidays Nepal.  It was easy and comfortable to confirm and book the tour. We were very happy with the services of LHN. The Tour Guide  Rahul was so nice. He assisted us very well during the tour. The Driver Krishna was also very good. He helped and supported us in carrying our luggage and his driving skill is amazing. They managed our trip very beautifully and provide us with comfortable accommodation. We enjoyed every moment of this trip. We’re planning on another trip with LHN next year and had requested Rahul again as our guide.
