What to Expect
After a 45-minute drive from the center of Kathmandu you’ll reach at the ancient hilltop temple of Changu Narayana. Dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the shrine is thought to be the oldest temple in Nepal.
Admire the temple’s magnificent artworks created in metal and wood. Changu Naray, established as a sacred site in the 3rd century A.D. is one of the finest examples of Nepalese architecture. The first epigraphic evidence of Nepalese history found in the temple dates to the reign of the Licchavi King Mandeva in 464 A.D.
On your 5-hour guided tour you’ll continue on to Bhaktapur, an important Newari town and the third-largest city in the Kathmandu Valley. Bhaktapur was the capital of Nepal during the great Malla Kingdom, which lasted until the second half of the 15th century.
The well-preserved ancient city is home to traditional art and architecture, historical monuments and crafts, pottery and weaving industries, a rich local culture, festivals, and mystical music traditions.
