Day 2: 9:00 AM City tour of Boudhanath, Pashupatinath, and Katmandu Durbar Square
Boudhanath: This ancient colossal Stupa is one of the biggest in the world. The base of the stupa takes the shape of a mandala (symbolizing earth): on this four tiered base sits the dome (symbolizing water): then comes the spire (symbolizing fire): the umbrella (symbolizing air); and the pinnacle (symbolizing ether). The spire is made up of 13 steps, representing the 13 stages on the journey to nirvana.Pashupatinath: The most important Hindu temple in Nepal. It’s one of the most important Shiva temples on the subcontinent and draws numerous devotees from all over Nepal and India, including many colorful sadhus- wandering ascetic Hindu holy men. Shiva is the destroyer and creator of the Hindu pantheon and appears in many forms.Katmandu Durbar Square: Durbar in Nepali means ‘palace’ and in Patan and Bhaktapur, as well as Katmandu, there are Durbar Squares in front of the old palaces. The king no longer resides in the old Royal Palace in Katmandu: the palace was moved north to Narayanhiti about a century ago. Clustered around the central Durbar Square and the old Royal Palace (Hanuman Dhoka) are numerous interesting temples, the Kumari Chowk or Kumari Bahal (House of the Living Goddess) and the Kasthamandap (House of Wood). It’s easy to spend hours wandering around Durbar square and the adjoining Basantapur Square.

Bhaktapur: The third of the valley’s ancient cities is another century-long rival of Katmandu. It has an impressive number of artistic treasures; it is rightly called “a living museum”. The oldest part of the town is around Tachupal Tole (Dattatraya Square), to the east. Bhaktapur was the capital of the whole valley during the 14th to 16the centuries and during that time the focus of the town shifted west, to the Durbar Square area.
