Observe the ancient temples and see their stories unfold through pictures of the intricately carved out details of “Devi’s” and “Deities.” Witness the “Kumari Ghar”, the home to living goddess “Kumari,”  who is believed to be pure in body and soul.  Then get your hippies clothes on and take a walk down memory lane for the old “Freak Street” at Jhonchhe Tole still has a 60’s and 70’ air about it.

Peek into the history of Nepal,  at the national museum nearby. A short ride later, you will be climbing up the 365 steps to reach the “Swayambhunath” Stupa.
