Basantapur, part of Kathmandu Durbar Square, is one of the UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites in Nepal. However, we take only a silver of the big pie and focus on the stretch from main entrance of Basantapur till the big open space that also makes us for the most vibrant area in the place.

Things to See:

a.    The tip of ‘Neparsinghdya Chaitya’ (a stupa) believed to be from the Lichchhavi period, located at the end of               Basantapur      courtyard stretch, which was accidentally excavated when the place was being renovated.

b.    The intricate woodcarvings on the Basantapur Tower, located on the right side of the main entrance.

c.     The chariot of Kumari –The Living Goddess

 Things to do:

a.   Purchase Nepali souvenirs; Nepal made gift items, arts and artefacts or ornaments, jewelleries and statues that may cost you as low as RS 100 or range up to thousands, from the shops and street side vendors.

b.      Visit the nearby Freak Street, a landmark to the hippies of the 70s, to hang out or walk inside the Basantapur Durbar Square and the museum to get a feel of the old and culturally rich Nepali history.
