The Kathmandu valley is filled with thousands of temples and shrines dedicated to the Hindu deities. This fact reveals the importance of Hinduism for the people residing there. This tour takes you on a journey in the Kathmandu Valley and aims at revealing you the most important and magnificent Hindu temples. The tour starts off by visiting the most important of them all – the Pashupatinath temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. The big complex is considered to be one of the “shakti peeths”, a number of temples with the highest importance for Hinduism. Witness the countless cremations on the bank of the holy river Bagmati and enjoy the enchanting music and dance during the evening worship – Aarati. We then continue our journey to the oldest Hindu temple in the valley – Changunarayan, lying next to the ancient city of Bhaktapur. From there we go to the main square of Bhaktapur ornamented with a dozen of important Hindu temples worshipped by devotees daily. After having explored all the three Durbar Squares in the valley – Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur and having met the living goddess of Kathmandu – Kumari, we continue our spiritual journey to the temple of Dakshinkali. Dakshinkali temple, lying south of Kathmandu is a highly revered location dedicated to the goddess Kali.
It is said that there are as many temples, shrines and idols in Kathmandu as there are houses. This makes Kathmandu the perfect location to explore Hinduism and its practices.
