“holy place”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

It is important and interesting mostly because of the religious connotation it holds. Also, the big statue of lord Bishnu lying on the ground is interesting

“nice pleace”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Well due to locatlion it's little not worth to get a taxi overthere ...then it's waste of time, althought you have seen most monuments of Kathmandu, Buddhanilkanta is very good to see on the way of bike route. It is easly to rent a bike from Thamel and make oneday excursion. By bike is nice 'cos the road is not so traffic, and area of Buddhanikantha is nice please to make some souvenirs buy.
