Day 2: Sightseeing at Bhudanilkantha, Bouddhanath stupa and Pashupatinath

After breakfast, Free till Noon. In the afternoon, we head towards Budha Neelkantha or Narayanthan, to the shrine of the ‘Sleeping Vishnu’ or Jalakshayan Narayan. Lying at the bottom of the Shivpuri Hills, the enormous statue of Lord Vishnu, carved from a single rock is one of the most ancient and grandest statues of Lord Vishnu.  The statue, which dates back to the Lichavi era, has a reclining Vishnu, surrounded by the twisting coils of Sheshnaag (cosmic serpent), half-immersed in a large tank of water (signifying the cosmic ocean). Our next destination is Boudha. A protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, Boudhanath Stupa is regarded as the most important centre of Tibetan Buddhism outside Tibet. Buddhists believe that the remains of Kasyapa Buddha (Lord Buddha’s previous incarnation) were interred at the spot where the stupa is built. At this holy site, light butter lamps and pray to Lord Buddha to bestow his blessings upon you. During sunset, we proceed to Pashupatinath temple for worship with Evening Arati on the banks of the Bagmati River. This major Hindu shrine offers countless temples dedicated to different Hindu deities within its huge areas. However, the main temple Pashupatinath is dedicated to Shiva, mythically said to be ‘the Destroyer’ - Shiva dwells here in what is said to be his ‘summer abode’’.
