Later we walk through typical local traditional Ason market to Thamel. This is a central market square in the medieval quarter of Kathmandu Valley. It is one of the oldest, busiest markets swarming with buyers and sellers. Whereas Thamel is a center for tourists, it is distinguished by its narrow alleys crowded with various shops, restaurants, pubs, trekking gear shops and vendors. Also one can opt for lunch in GARDEN OF DREAMS, a neo classical historical garden situated in the midst of Kathmandu city, Nepal. The Garden was famous as the garden of Six Seasons which was created by late Field Marshal Kaiser Sumsher Rana (1892-1964) in early 1920.
Then later we head to the holiest Hindu temple of Nepal, PASHUPATINATH. This is a two-tiered golden roof and silver door temple dedicated to a manifestation of Shiva called Pashupati (Lord of Animals). The exact date of the foundation of the shrine is not known but the first historical records date from the 13th century. The site has a sprawling collection of temples, ashrams, images, and inscriptions raised over the centuries along the banks of the sacred Bagmati river. In the evening we can see the performing of the Arati. The Arati is an expression of one’s complete and unflinching love towards God. It is sung and performed with a deep sense of reverence, adoration, and meditative awareness.
