Horrible road getting to Panauti, but once you're there, nice to stroll around. Reminds me of what KTM was like 48 years ago, when I first landed there. No restaurants though, just some local chai shops. They will try to charge you for entering the Indra temple area, can't remember if it was 2-300 Rs. The main temple has some interesting drawings on the walls. The only one I recognized was of Krishna stealing the gopis' clothing. Everywhere around the village are fields of potatoes. We got an interesting tour by chance of a vocational training school staffed by some German volunteers. Woodworking and electrical. Was fun.

I enjoyed my visit to the Indreshwar Mahadev temple and the surrounding temples, shrines and ghats. It is said to be the oldest temple in the Kathmandu valley if not the whole of Nepal yet few travellers make it to this quite corner of the valley.

The whole complex seems untouched since the day it was built. There were a few locals performing puja while I was there but no other travellers. It was interesting both to observe the locals and to wander around unhindered and without being pestered by guides.

The temple is at the confluence of two rivers but legend says that the more spiritually enlightened can see three rivers. I saw two. Thr temple complex is a gem - as are some of the surrounding streets which have traditional Newari buildings - and worth an overnight stay or half a day from Dhulikhel or Namo Buddha. (Though the rest of the town has little to commend it.)

I did come to Panauti on a day trip from Kathmandu by using pubic buses. It is about two hour bus trip from Ratna Park station in Kathmandu. The bus ride was very inexpensive (about 60 rupees) - not sure how much the taxi would charge. The temple is amazing - it hasn't been damaged during the earthquake so it was so nice to see the temple in Nepal that wasn't touched by the disaster. There is a museum on site and there are a few other temples of interest near by at the river. I would say it makes a worth wide day trip from Kathmandu if you are using cheap public transport especially. Plan to spend a couple of hours in the city at the most.

This really felt more like a place in use than a place on display. Very autenthic and charming and well wort to visit. A ticket for the entire panauti historical zone including this temple and the museum is 300 rupees. I also made sure to donate some small bills in the museum, as I think such a nice town as this should get preserved!

This Temple is about 700 yrs old. It is that of Lord Shiva. Behind the temple (5 min walk), they cremate the dead by the river, so do watch out if you are not comfortable and do not just loiter outside the temple.

The temple itself is spectacular.

This area of Panauti is quite old and the workmanship of the buildings amazing. The museum has lots of interesting items but not much literature. Enjoyable anyway.
