DAY 2 - Kathmandu - Nepal
City tour visiting Pashupatinath - One of  the holiest Hindu shrines situated on the banks of the Holy Bagmati River. The richly ornamented pagoda houses the sacred linga, (or phallic symbol) of Lord Shiva. This is  also a cremation site for Hindus, where the dead bodies are burned with ritual ceremony on the banks of the holy river. Just a few minutes drive from Pashupatinath is Boudhanath which is one of the biggest stupas in the world. With its four pair of eyes in four cardinal directions, it keeps watch for righteous behaviour and human property.

In the afternoon we drive to Swayambhunath. Regarded as more than 2000 years old this stupa is situated at 77m/253ft above the level of the valley and thus has magnificent birdseye view of Kathmandu Valley.  From Swayambhunath we drive to Kathmandu Durbar Square. With more than 50 temples and shrines within a few blocks, the square contains one of the most concentrated groupings of historical structures in the valley. This complex of palaces, courtyards and temples, built between the 12th and 18th centuries, used to be the seat of ancient Malla kings of Kathmandu.
