Nepal Diaries

Holy birthplace of Lord Buddha, the blessing of Lord Shiva, kiss with the mountains, ride like a king on the elephant and say a big Hi to the crocs. That’s what’s is my top seeing in Nepal

A country like Nepal has more to offer than just than the mountains. The trip to Nepal unfolded all the beauty and fun….

Here are my top places to see in Nepal

1.Birth place of Lord Buddha:- One of the UNESCO heritage site and pilgrimage centre. The holy center has a sacred Bodhi tree, an ancient bathing pond, the Ashoka pillar and Mayadevi temple. Archaeological remains associated with the birth of the Lord Buddha form a central place of interest

2. Boudhnath Stupa: – It is the largest stupa in Nepal and the holiest Tibetan Buddhist temple outside Tibet

The stupa is located in the town of Boudha, on the eastern outskirts of Kathmandu. Boudnath Stupa looks like a giant mandala, the scared hym Om Mani Padme Hum – is carved on the prayer wheels beside the images of Avalokiteshvara around the base of the stupa.

 

3. Sarangkot: – Located on the outskirts of Pokhara city is the hill known as Sarangkot. It offers both sunrise and sunset viewing.
The beautiful sunset of the Annapurna range just gives an exemplary visual treat. The scene is so beautiful that the eyes just don’t let you go away…. It’s a gateway to the Annapurna Valley and close to Pokhara.
