Jayaprakash Malla, the last Malla king to rule Kathmandu, built a temple for Kumari and Durga in her virginal state. The temple was named Kumari Bahal and was structured like a typical Newari Vihara.
In this house resides the Kumari, a girl who is revered as the living goddess.
He also made a chariot for Kumari and in the courtyardhad detailed terra cotta tiles of that time laid down.
Bouddhanath is among the largest stupas in South Asia, and it has become the focal point of Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal. The white mound looms thirty-six meters overhead.
The stupa is located on the ancient trade route to Tibet, and Tibetan merchants rested and offered prayers here for many centuries. When refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many of them decided to live around Bouddhanath. 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. Monks walk about in maroon robes. Tibetans walk with prayer wheels in their hands, and the rituals of prostration are presented to the Buddha as worshippers circumambulate the stupa on their hands and knees, bowing down to their lord.
The five meter long image of Vishnu as Narayan is believed to have been created in 7th to 8th Century. Vishnu has many incarnations and in Nepal often
appears as Narayan, the creator of all life, the god who reclines on the cosmic sea. The Narayan lies back on the multithreaded snake ‘Ananta’. The sleeping Vishnu image attracts lots of pilgrims.
Manakamana Temple: It is a temple of Durga Bhawani (Hindu Goddess), situated in Gorkha District of Nepal. Manakamana means the ‘wishes’. It is believed that Goddess Manakamana fulfills the wishes of ones who worship her with pure heart.
It is very true when someone wish something from heart it is fulfilled by the Goddesses. It is situated at about 1300 meters at a top of a hill surround by a small village community.
