Owner description: The Garden of Dreams, a neo classical historical garden, is situated in the midst of Kathmandu city, Nepal. The Garden's design has much in common with formal European gardens: paved perimeter paths, punctuated by pavilions, trellises, and various planting areas, surrounded by a sunken flower garden with a large pond at its center. It is an architectural landscape that encourages the visitor to stroll around and discover the Garden's treasures from many different vantage points.

“A lovely peaceful garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

This was a great place to visit. A beautifully laid out garden with many places to sit and enjoy the warmth of the sun. The many courting couples provided an entertaining diversion. Coffee and cake in the Kaiser Cafe in the garden was excellent too.

“Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The Garden of Dreams is great for escaping the chaos which surrounds it. The compound is immaculate, beautiful, and peaceful. Well worth the roughly $2 admission.

“Nice and quiet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

After some days in Kathmandu it was nice to relax in the beautiful garden with no noises. It is like coming to Vienna - it is restored by the Austrians. But one hour is enough.

“A Nice Respite in the Middle of Kathmandu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The Garden of Dreams is a beautiful little park, walled in from the noisy city outside, and provides a peaceful place to re-coup while doing a city tour. There is a cafe and bar which are acceptable.
