Visiting the valley will give tourists a chance to learn about the rich cultural legacy and traditions of the ethnic communities that call it home.

Kathmandu Durbar Square
Kathmandu Durbar Square (Hanuman Dhoka) is one of the main attractions in Kathmandu Valley. It got enlisted as a world heritage site by UNESCO. Most of the cultural centres of Nepal concentrate around the Kathmandu valley; among those cultural sites, the important one is the Kathmandu Durbar Square. The name Hanuman Dhoka Durbar came from the statue of Hanuman established by King Pratap Malla at the doorway of the royal palace in 1672. The durbar lies in the guts of an ancient city in Kathmandu, surrounded by Hindu and Buddhist temples. Most of them are inbuilt in the pagoda style embellished with intricately carved exteriors also as Most of the buildings we see here go back 15th to 18th centuries. The Durbar Square, with its old temples, and palaces, epitomizes the religious and cultural life of the people. The multiple amazing things to experience here are Kumari (The Living Goddess) house, Kastha Mandap, Maru Ganesh, Mahadev Temple, Shiva Parvati Temple, Bhagwati Temple, Old palaces, Saraswoti temple, Krishna Octangular Temple, Big drums, Kaal Bhairav, Jagannath Temple, Taleju Temple, and so on.
The Durbar Square area has two sub-areas. The outer complex is renowned for stunning temples like Kumari Ghar, Kasthamandap, Shiv-Parbati Temple, Jagannath Temple, and Big Bella. The inner complex comprises the old palace area, Hanuman Dhoka, and its courtyards as Nasal Choke, Mul Chowk, Sundari Chowk, Basantapur Durbar, and others.

Boudhanath Stupa
Boudhanath Stupa is the largest stupa in Nepal. Boudhanath Stupa is the most famous and old stupa that lies to the east of Kathmandu city. The stupa lies within the town of Boudha, on the eastern outskirts of Kathmandu.

Pashupati Temple
Pashupatinath temple is the most religious temple for Hindus living everywhere. It is the temple of Lord Shiva. Pashupati is a Hindu temple on the banks of the Bagmati River in Deopatan, a village 3 km northwest of Kathmandu. This temple is the manifestation of Shiva called Pashupati (Lord of Animals). It has become documented far beyond the Kathmandu Valley and attracts thousands of pilgrims. Although the restriction inside the temple for Non-Hindus, we can observe the temple from the outer banks of the Bagmati river.
It is a square, two-tiered pagoda temple built on a single-tier plinth, and it stands 23.6 meters above the bottom. Silver-plated doors and richly ornamented gilt are on all sides. The temple inside is a narrow ambulatory around the sanctum. The sanctum consists of a one-meter-high linga with four faces (Chaturmukha) representing Pashupati and images of Vishnu, Surya, Devi, and Ganesh.
The priests of Pashaputinath are called Bhattas. Therefore, the chief priest is named Mool Bhatt or Raval. 


Last but not least, a visit to the Swayambhunath Stupa, popularly known as the Monkey Temple, is a must on any trip to Nepal. Atop a hill, this historic Buddhist temple provides breathtaking vistas of the Kathmandu Valley. A sight to behold is the white stupa in the form of a dome, embellished with vibrant prayer flags and the all-seeing eyes of Buddha. The jovial monkeys that roam the temple grounds are also great subjects for photographs.

Bhaktapur or Bhadgaun:
Bhaktapur is a famous city inside Kathmandu valley. The Bhaktapur Durbar Square contains innumerable temples and architectural wonders like a Lion Gate, the Golden Gate, the statue of King Bhupatindra Malla, and the Dattatraya Temple. UNESCO World Heritage Monument List enlisted Bhaktapur Durbar Square in 1979. King Yaksha Malla built the 55-window palace in 1427, an intricately carved wooden balcony and windows.

Chagunarayan Temple
Changunarayan Temple is the oldest temple in the Kathmandu valley. King Hari Datta built this temple in 323 AD. This ancient temple is devoted to the Hindu deity Lord Vishnu and lies on a hilltop 8 km east of Kathmandu. The pagoda-style temple contains several masterpieces of Nepalese art from as early as the 5th century.


When in Kathmandu Valley, one just cannot miss a visit to Patan. Patan, also known as Lalitpur, is home to multiple historical and cultural landmarks. Because of the well preserved architecture and cultural ethos of a city, it has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
