Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour Package
Kathmandu is a fascinating, historic city with beautiful architecture, magnificent wood carvings, and craftsmanship that showcase centuries-old Newar artists’ abilities. It’s a city where old traditions are fiercely guarded and modern technology is enthusiastically welcomed. Since the dawn of civilization, Hinduism and Buddhism have coexisted in the Kathmandu valley, and valley residents worship at both Hindu and Buddhist sites.
Formation of Kathmandu
According to mythology, the Buddhist saint Manjushree formed the Kathmandu valley by bursting the valley wall with his sword, draining the massive lake that once filled the valley. The lake drained away naturally some 10,000 years ago, but the earliest evidence of a permanent city appeared in the second century BC, according to archaeologists.
Kathmandu’s History & Religion
The stupa at Swoyambhunath became a prominent Buddhist pilgrimage site, while the sacred Bagmati River attracted Hindu visitors. Religion played an important part in Kathmandu’s explosive growth. The establishment of the Lichhavi empire in the fourth century AD brought in the first of many golden ages, with its monarchs kicking off trade across the nation. Following that, a series of dynasties rose and fell until the Malla rulers took control of the valley in the 11th century. The monarchs of Kathmandu lavished their town with temples, palaces, and stupas. Prithvi Narayan Shah united the three kingdoms of the valley (Kathmandu, Bhaktapur & Lalitpur) in 1768AD, with Kathmandu as the capital.
