What travelers are saying
- Definitely a cultural thing to do while in Kathmandu, a touristy place but at 8:00am there are prayers going around the stupa praying transmitting peace and tranquility.Written December 3, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- One of the three great temples which I visit on all my trekking visits to Nepal and Kathmandu.
Monkeys everywhere and several groups of pilgrims chanting from the scriptures.Written December 7, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I was sadly surprised to see that after paying 1000 rupees I was not allowed to visit the temple where are performed the Puja (rituals). It's a pity. In the churches and Buddhist temples you're not asked to what religion you belongWritten December 8, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Good spot for hotel and restaurants. Traffic and noise are there but good for walking around. Many chooses of Hotels.Written November 29, 2023
- Went here first thing in the morning so it was cool and just starting to get crowded. There are a few temples to take pictures of. Like Kathmandu in general it feels chaotic to a westerner, but that’s the way the city is. Everyone was friendly. Don’t need more than about 45 minutes hereWritten October 21, 2023
- THIS place is a peaceful oasis from the noisy bustle and crazy traffic which is Kathmandu.
The gardens are well laid out with several water features, colourful planting, graceful trees and a chance to relax in a little cafe area.
All that said, I still felt I was being discretely drained of as much money as the site could get out of me.
Entry cost R400 or about £2.40. This is not a lot of money but it is still a great deal by local standards for what might politely be called a "compact" garden.
The cafe then adds to the cost. Yes, you can ignore it, but a cool drink on a hot day is difficult to resist and that was another R170 or just over £1.
I didn't begrudge the money but I'm bound to say others sat round me grumbled at the cost which was a pity as I had spent a pleasant half hour walking round the gardens and enjoying a break from the busy merry-go-round of sightseeing in Kathmandu.
Overall I would say that a visit to the Garden of Dreams is worthwhile without being outstanding.Written November 25, 2023

- I dare to say that our trek in Nepal turned out to be Perfect, thanks to Deb from Shalom Tours. Deb was very tentative to our expectations and concerns, he responds to our communications via email/whatsup promptly, addressing every question we had before the trek. He was very welcoming once there, and the best part he knew exactly which guide will be best for us, Arjun, our perfect guide! with Tashi as a porter. they have turned this journey into an extraordinary one. Arjun, thank you for your unconditional support, your gentle soul, your endless care for us and your ability to be so attentive. you are the BEST❤️
I would certainly recommend this wonderful AgencyWritten December 3, 2023

The place is in hilly areas a little away (12 kms) from Kathmandu. This place is well connected by the public buses and taxis. The uniqueness of the deity pose makes this a must visit for religious people.
There are religious performances / dances and this place also has "Rudraksha" trees. There are shops dotting this area which sells souvenier and rudraksha at very reasonable price. Do not fall prey to the roadside people selling multi-mukhi rudraksha most of which are fakeWritten September 4, 2023
- KATHMANDU was devastated by two eathquakes in 2015 which destroyed or damaged more than 600,000 buildings in the area and killed more than 9,000 people.
I was making my first ever visit to Nepal eight years after the quakes yet evidence of that terrible day still lay everywhere I went.
Building after building from humble homes to palaces are still being held up and braced by baulks of wood or steel girders.
Everywhere you go there is scaffolding for the ongoing colossal task of rebuilding ancient and modern structures.
Take just a few steps off the main street and the quakes might have been eight weeks ago rather than eight years with heaps of rubble, stacks of carved timbers and piles of material from collapsed buildings occupying almost every bit of available back street space.
It is a credit to the people of Nepal that they have somehow managed to restore so much of their wrecked history, but there is so much more still to do and I believe it will be a generation, perhaps two, before an end to restoration may be sight.
So my guide justifiably had an air of pride in his voice as he showed me round this palace, that courtyard and neat squares of buildings with that sheen of restoration newness about them.
The architecture is stunning and heaven only knows what it must have looked like in its pristine prime.
I paid 1,000 rupees for my entry into the changing face of Hanuman Dhoka Durbar Square which I found fascinating.
People waited reverently to get a glimpse of Kumari, the living goddess of Nepal, who appears briefly in a window at a set time.
Palaces and temples also drain your time away and, before you know it, it is time to move on.
Don't miss a chance to visit this intriguing place which offers a rich past, displays a devastated present and hints at a Phoenix-like future. It will leave you with shaken feelings at man's works put in their place by powerful Nature.Written November 24, 2023
- Overall it was a nice place to visit. Is it a must? As for me no. The atmosphere was nice. Bathrooms are dirty and smell. It's must be a cultural thing. Everybody spitting everywhere. It's not nice where I come from. We find it disgusting. But this seem to be a cultural thing. My overall experience in Nepal was nice. Will I visit again? Maybe.Written November 15, 2023
