  • At the height of Kirtipur, this temple stands the mightiest. It has its own important religious significance. In addition, you get amazing view of Kathmandu Valley and the place has proper sanitation and management too. You can take your vehicle right at it door and park there too. Also you may opt in for small walk through stairs. Many people visit here for religious activities too.
  • Loved to be here especially during morning time it gives so positives vibes. You guys should be visiting if yet not then🤞
