    This 144 feet tall statue is the tallest Shiva in the world. Built of cement, copper and zinc, this statue has a very beautiful smiling face of Lord Shiva. It is in Bharkatpur in Nepal. About 2 hr drive from Kathmandu.
    A nominal entrance fee is levied. The entire location is calm , beautiful and well maintained. A shop selling snacks and artifacts is in place near the statue.
    A must - see in Nepal.

    this statue looked very powerful and a bit scary in some ways and the religious significance made this statue even more amazing. it was really cool to see the locals worshipping the statue.

    We bought 2 paintings from here today for 3 specific reasons.

    1: the art is beautiful.
    2: we were able to browse without being constantly pestered by someone trying to make a sale.
    3: The seller did not try to rip us off, he gave us a reasonable price from the get go unlike other galleries we went to.

    10/10 would recommend this art gallery!

    Entrance was through a narrow alley way into a largish sqyare dominated by the Stupa and some smaller temples around the edges.This was a good place for people watching as there were many people around the busy square.

    I was guided to this hidden Stupa by the earlier reviewer when we popped into the adjacent café/bar for a drink. The waiter kindly showed me to it and told me that it was only used on rare occasions.
