Attraction details
Reviewed March 24, 2012

A single stone statue of Lord Vishnu in lying state in a pool was amazing. In fact till now I have seen only two temples where the deity is in lying position-Padmanabha temple in Thiruanantpuram and Budhanilkantha in Kathmandu.The atmosphere was very peaceful.In fact after checking in the hotel,it was the first sightseeing we did and we were very happy.

If you have chance come here... especially if you head to Shivapuri
Although it is little outstanding and I've heared complains there is nothing to do there I've been there times just for one reason - to see the exceptional statue of Vishnu Narayan 8AD

The statue of Budha nilkantha, is an example of good work on stone on the ancient time.Budhanilkantha is one of holiest places for all the Hindus. As the god of protection , we Hindu can believe that we can be protected by Bishnu.
