Temples and Streets of Kathmandu: A Photo Essay

Despite spending only half a day to explore Kathmandu, I have found the city quite extraordinary and enchanting. During that short time, I was intrigued by what I saw – ancient temples, historic monuments, UNESCO World Heritage Sites – that I took quite a number of photos.

Here’s a photo essay of Kathmandu’s temples and street life: 32 images of Durbar Square, Swayambhunath Stupa (Monkey Temple), Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa.

And a video of my visit to Boudhanath. Did I mention before that this is my favourite place in Kathmandu? 🙂

Hope this inspires you to book your flight ticket to Kathmandu asap, or if not, at least, to move Nepal up your travel bucket list 🙂

*My trip in Nepal was part of the Himalayan Travel Mart FAM trip sponsored by Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Nepal Chapter. Opinions expressed in this post are, as always, my own.


Are you planning a trip to Kathmandu soon? How about booking your accommodation here?
