It flaunts its rich history and vibrant culture in every possible nook and cranny. Kathmandu Durbar Square is rich with ancient palaces with spectacular art and architecture whereas Pashupatinath Temple is one of the holiest places for Hindus. You then make your way to the largest stupa in the world: Boudhanath Stupa followed by Swayambhunath Temple. Swayambhunath meaning the "the self-existent" is popular among foreigners owing to the large monkey population residing in the area. No wonder why it’s also called “Monkey Temple”.

Ashoka Pillar (which bears the oldest inscription of Nepal), Queen Maya Devi Temple, ancient monasteries, the sacred Bodhi Tree, and the ancient bathing pond are the noteworthy attractions around here. Visit the museum, peace pagoda and stroll around the meditation site. Next up is the historical site of Kapilvastu, Tilaurakot where Siddhartha Gautam spent the first 29 years of his life.
