Half day City Tour 4 hrs (Buddha Stupa and Pasupatinath Temple)
This tour will let you see how two different religions and cultures co-exist peacefully in Kathmandu. Pashupatinath lies on the banks of Bagmati River and this Hindu Temple precinct consists of temples, ashrams, inscriptions and images. Boudhanath area, which is just 5 mins drive away from Pashupatinath, is rich in Tibetan Culture within Kathmandu and is home to more than 50 Tibetan Monasteries (Gompas).
Religion is a way of life and at the heart of every religion lies designated sacred places where deities are remembered and worshiped. These sacred places are often the birthplace center of the finest architecture, symbols, and culture within that religion. Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa also bear these hallmark.

Stop At: Boudhanath Stupa, Boudh, Kathmandu 44600 Nepal
Bouddha 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 located on the ancient trade route to Tibet, and Tibetan merchants rested and offered prayers here for many centuries. When refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many of them decided to live around Bouddhanath. They established many gompas, and the "Little Tibet" of Nepal was born. This "Little Tibet" is still the best place in the Valley to observe Tibetan lifestyle. Monks walk about in maroon robes. Tibetans walk with prayer wheels in their hands, and the rituals of prostration are presented to the Buddha as worshippers circumambulate the stupa on their hands and knees, bowing down to their lord.
