A blessed place, full of power and peace, very special. A real holiness emanates throughout, and an area to meditate downstairs.

Bajrayogini Mandir located in Sankhu Village, One hour by motorbike from Boudha. The road is very bouncy that is why it needs a quite long time to reach there. But once i got there, i feel the serenity and sacred feeling of the place. The temple consists of two big shrines, several stupas, and some caves that said to be... More

Nice holy temple, good option for a day trip nearby Kathmandu if you are on budget. Capture the temples, views and cultural temple that reflects the history and religious importance of Nepal.

This temple is situated at Budhaneelkanth. Its not that far from Thamel, main tourist attraction. It is a beautiful temple. In this temple the main attraction is a lying Vishnu God in water. People come to seek his blessings.

It's a long climb up there, but well worth the effort. Enjoyed a Perfect Day with my Host/Companion Ramhari Neupane from Hotel Dream City.

Fantastic views and drive up to the temple. It was very quiet when we went. Lots of steps and a fabulous view of the valley. Lots of pigeons which appear to be destroying parts of the temple.
