A great story behind the formation of temple. Must go . A place where person feels like we standing are just in front of God in real.

It is a bit away from the city. Main attraction is a very large lying/sleeping statue of hindu lord Vishnu. It is also scenic area to walk in the temple.

A must visit if you are in Kathmandu. Bit far from the city though worth a visit. Some great views of the hills from the temple.
