Nepal DURBAR SQUARE
Kathmandu’s most impressive sight, Durbar Square is a colourful hotch-potch of temples and palaces. It is also home to Kathmandu’s Kumari, or ‘living goddess’, a young girl believed to be a reincarnation of the goddess Durga.

SWAYAMBHUNATH
Known as the ‘monkey temple’ because of its resident swarm of apes, this spectacular Buddhist Stupa, from which the Buddha’s eyes gaze serenely down, lies on a hilltop only 2km from Kathmandu. The views down over Kathmandu and the surrounding valley are superb.

BOUDHANATH
8km from the city centre, this is Kathmandu’s largest Stupa. It’s especially colourful on Saturdays, when Tibetan refugees flock here to pray.

PASHUPATINATH TEMPLE
On the bank of the sacred Bagmati River, this Shiva Temple is famous for its two-tiered golden roof and silver doors
