Garuda-Half man, Half bird: From the city of Temples and palaces
Garuda-The half-man, half-bird character supposedly used by a Hindu god to travel around.Kathmandu, the city of temples and palaces have numerous sites of religious, cultural and historical importance.

In what is seen as a moral boost to the tourism entrepreneurs, Kathmandu has been ranked as the 3rd best city in Asia by Travel and Leisure magazine. Bangkok tops the chart while Hongkong is settled at number five. It is a real surprise to the whole world that Kathmandu was able to win the hearts of the tourists despite the domestic violence which plagued the country for about a decade. However, with the signs for peace rolling around the corner, Kathmandu should be a hot spot for the tourists again.

So, what is there to see in Kathmandu? Well, literally there are millions of things that you don’t want to miss out on your trip to this wonderland. There are numerous historical and cultural sites. Kathmandu is also called the city of temples. Five sites in Kathmandu have been listed as World Heritage Sites.

  1. Patan Durbar Square
  2. Kathmandu Durbar Sqaur
  3. Pashupati, Bouddha, Swayambhunath
  4. Changu Narayan
  5. Balaju, Budhanilkantha
  6. Kritipur, Chobhar and Dakshinkali

Nagarkot is the perfect place to see the sun rise and the nearby mountains. Moreover, numerous mountains are visible from Kathmandu. Spacious, cheap and comfortable 5-star hotels are there to serve you with what you need. If you want even more cheaper hotels, you can find them here too.
