Kathmandu Valley is literally a City of Temples and listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site with seven impressive monuments in a radius of 15km. As per the legend, Kathmandu valley was a lake once and the bodhisattva from Tibet “Manjushree” drained all the water by chopping the Chobar hill of the countryside hill “Chobar”.
Nepal was divided into small kingdoms and principalities and ruled by several dynasties. The Licchavi and Malla dynasties were the most popular as their reign was known as the “Golden Era for Art and Architecture”. There are several monuments dated as early as the 4th century to a latest 17th century which shows the true craftsmanship of the dedicated artist’s work on various structure, style and carving techniques.
