    We ate at several of the restaurants and did some shopping, too. A lovely, quiet refuge in the middle of Kathmandu. Stayed at the fabulous Baber Mahal Vilas.

    This Temple is one of the visited temples of Nepal. it is atop abot 1400 m hillock. A cable car service connects this temple from the highway. The Cable car service is a well maintained one and there are a number of cable cars going up and down. The cost of travel is minimum and one need not waiting time is negligible. The travel time is about 20 minutes and offers you an exquisite view of the valley and the might river.
    The temple is a small one dedicated to Goddess Bhagavathi. The temple has a Pagoda-like structure and devotees offer the prayes with incense sticks coconuts and flowers.

    We visited this small market area as part of our tour of Kathmandu Durbar Square - and came away with a tiger/sheep game after some bartering of course!

    This temple is one of the most important and oldest in Kathmandu. It is situated on the roadside in the heart of the Newari part of the city. Newari are the original inhabitants of Kathmadu. You'll recognise this small temple by the two large dogs sitting either side of the entrance. The surrounding area has many fine examples of temples and shrines, often accessed through small archways in the the street which lead into amazing temple squares. The temple is located on a crossroads (chowk) between Chhetrapati chowk and Durbar Square and needs to be sought out. The lot of the building are old Newari style, ornately carved dark wood beams with red brick. This Nara Devi temple has a long history and should not be missed.

    Just right opposite to Garden of dreams we saw a black gate and when we entered we saw so many small small temples. Some people were there. A huge bell is also there.

    Kathmandu has lots of temples, but each of them leaves a different impression on you. Vishnu Mandir Temple is one of the most important ones.

    Not much to see except one temple in a crowded section of Kathmandu covered with fabrics and goods for sale. It is on a very busy and well traveled street. Doesn't cost anything so a look is a no brainer!

    The Vishnu Mandir we visited is at the outskirt towards north of the town. It is believed that the Vishnu statue in resting posture appeared on its own during a farmer ploughing his land. It is beautiful to see Vishnu lying in bed mid of a pool. Must see place and have a splash of the divine water from the pool by the local priest, during our time it was young boys who were the priests.
