The small alleys (path in the city) it has, are amazing and really authentic.  The 55-windows palace, golden gate, Nyatapola temple, Pottery and Dattatreya are the attractions of our visit. There are also nice restaurants for lunch and the yoghurt (king’s curd) is the most appreciated food here.

The Hindu cremation on the bank of the holiest river Bagmati is another important site here. The cremation here is all like the public affair and it is open. From the preparation to the procession of the funeral to the cremation can be openly seen here.  All around, there are many temples dedicated to Shiva and Hindu priest, known as Sadhus can be seen painted on the face having a dead log hair. They might ask you for the photos with some donation.

The final destination is the largest Buddhist Stupa known as Boudhanath not far from Pashupatinath temple.  Just entering from the main road makes ones feel peaceful even looking such a huge stupa with the Eyes of Buddha.  The dome with the yellow smear seems really beautiful and makes us take many photos.
