    • entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many of them decided to live aroundBouddhanath. They established many Gompas, and the "Little Tibet" of Nepal was born.This "Little Tibet" is still the best place in the Valley to observe Tibetan lifestyle. Monkswalk about in maroon robes. Tibetans walk with prayer wheels in their hands, and therituals of prostration are presented to the Buddha as worshippers circumambulate theStupa on their hands and knees, bowing down to their lord.Many people believe that Bouddhanath was constructed in the fifth century, but definiteproof is lacking. The stupa is said to entomb the remains of a Kasyap sage who isvenerable both to Buddhists and Hindus. One legend has it that a woman requested aValley king for the donation of ground required to build a stupa. She said she neededland covered by one buffalos skin and her wish was granted by the King. She cut abuffalo skin into thin strips and circled off a fairly large clearing. The king had no choicebut to give her the land.The Bouddha area is a visual feast. Colorful thangkas, Tibetan Jewellery, hand-wovencarpets, masks, and khukuri knives are sold in the surrounding stalls. Smaller stupasare located at the base. Gompa monasteries, curio shops, and restaurants surroundBouddhanath. Conveniently situated restaurants with roof-top patios provide good foodand excellent views of Bouddhanath. Pashupatinath Pashupatinath is the holiest Hindu pilgrimage destination in Nepal. There are Linga images of Shiva along with statues, shrines, and temples dedicated to other deities in the complex. A temple dedicated to Shiva existed at this site in AD 879. However, the present temple was built by King Bhupatindra Malla in 1697. A gold-plated roof, silver doors, and woodcarvings of the finest quality decorate the pagoda construction. GuheswariTemple, restored in AD 1653, represents the female "force". It is dedicated to Satidevi,Shivas first wife, who gave up her life in the flames of her fathers fire ritual.A circuit of the Pashupati area takes visitors past a sixth-century statue of the Buddha,an eighth-century statue of Brahma the creator and numerous other temples. Someother places to visit are Rajrajeswari Temple, built in 1407, Kailas with lingas more than1,400 years old, Gorakhnath temple, and the courtyard of Biswarup. There are rows ofShiva shrines and Hindu pilgrims from all over South Asia offering puja worship toShiva, tile Lord of Destruction. The Bagmati River flows close by and the Arya Ghatcremation grounds are here. We strongly advisephotographers not to take photos of cremations and of bereaved families. Sadhus,sages who follow the lifestyle of Shiva, may be seen covered in ashes and loin-cloths.They ask for money in case you want to take their photos. The mainPashupatinath courtyard may be entered by those of Hindu faith only.Overnight: Hotel Page 54 Phone: #91-11-43090909 (100 Lines), Fax: 91-11-23738644 24x7 Support: 0091-09811557778 Email: niti@joy-travels.com >> TOP
