A world of contrasting edifices of red sandstone and white marble, narrow galleys, bustling streets and small buggies, Agra retains the irresistible charm that made this the favorite city of the Mughals.

    • Day 7 / Kathmandu
      Details

      Today we continue our visit in Kathmandu – Patan Durbar Square, Swayambhunath, Durbar Square and Ason Market Morning.

      Start your exploration with a visit to Patan Durbar square – the city of artistry. It is known for its rich tradition of arts and handicrafts such as metal statues and ornate architecture. The square is mélange of old Royal palace, artistic courtyards, and pagoda temples. This complex formerly a Royal palace has now turned into a museum for visitors. There are three main courtyards in the palace, among which the Sundari Chowk is best known for a masterpiece of the stone architecture. Continue your exploration of Swayambhunath. Perched on top of a conical hill is a white dome with glittering golden spire is visible from all sides of the valley for many miles. This most ancient and enigmatic of all the holy shrines in Kathmandu Valley, Swayambhunath
      Stupa, is also known as the “Monkey Temple”. This place offers an excellent view of the Valley. Though the temples around the stupa had some minor destruction and one of the temples beside the stupa collapsed during the earthquake in 2016, the process of reconstruction is still ongoing. At Swayambhunath, watch the Tibetan pilgrimages and monk chanting prayers and praying in their traditional cultural clothes in the monastery. End the day with a visit to Durbar square, where the charm of old town blends well with traditional architecture in a rich cultural backdrop. Kathmandu’s Durbar Square
      was where the city’s kings were once crowned and legitimised, and from where they ruled (durbar means palace). As such, the square remains the traditional heart of the old town and Kathmandu’s most spectacular legacy of traditional architecture. The square bore the brunt of Kathmandu’s 2015 earthquake damage. Half a dozen temples collapsed, as did several towers in the Hanuman Dhoka palace complex, but it’s still a fabulous complex. Reconstruction will continue for years. Take a walk through the Ason Market, a local bazaar and well-known place for buying daily requirements. A lush
      of crowded locals enchant you with the daily lifestyle.

      Morning explore Pashupatinath temple – a World Heritage site. It is the principal Hindu shrine in Nepal and one of the foremost temples to Shiva on the Indian subcontinent. Shiva is worshipped here as Pashupati, lord of beasts, who as protector of all living creatures is also the patron deity of Nepal. Temples, ashrams (hermitages), dharamsalas, shrines and ghats spread over a wide area along the sacred Bagmati embankment. Though Non Hindus are not allowed inside the temple; one can clearly see the temple and the activities from the eastern bank of the Bagmati River. (The Bagmati River flows close by and the Arya Ghat cremation grounds are here. We strongly advise not to take photos of cremations and of bereaved families.
