A Half Day Cultural and Spiritual Tour to Pashupatinath and Boudhanath is a tour that leads you to two significant landmarks of the valley. Set out on a voyage to discover cultural, religious, and historical sites also enlisted on UNESCO world heritage sites. Pop in the two most visited sights of Kathmandu valley – Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa, the Hindu and Buddhist sacred pilgrimage sites respectively.
Pashupatinath temple is one of the holiest shrines located on the banks of the Bagmati River, dedicated to Lord Shiva. As you tour this sacred site, look at medieval art and architecture in temples that illustrate the fine details of wood and metal lacerations. The elegant golden pagoda roof and silver door encompass the main Shivalinga devoted to various idols in the complex. Also, witness the Hindu funeral rituals at the cremation site on the river bank before heading to another cultural site.
After the exploration of the Pashupatinath temple, you'll head to the second destination, the Boudhanath stupa, which is the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal. It is also an important pilgrimage site for Tibetan people around the world. The stupa itself is of a unique design – a whitewashed dome having its own cultural value and definition. If you glance at the dome clearly and continually, you'll notice it is whitewashed and embellished with saffron waters in a lotus petals pattern. With the countless Tibetan monasteries around it, the cultures and aesthetic values have been upheld by the Tibetan people. Stroll around the stupa in a clockwise direction spinning the prayer wheels as you pray.
