Kathmandu valley


The valley is situtated at an altitude of 1336 meter above sea level and cover an area of 218 sq miles. The rich tapestry of the culture heritage of Nepal is synthesized in the Kathmandu valley, the home of the ancient and sophisticated Newari culture. The Newars are the indigenous inhabitants of the valley and the creators of the splendid civilizations of its three cities – Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. The skillfully-built temples and places, delicately-engraves stone and metal images, carved wooden columns and pillars, and the history laden shrines and chaityas of these three historical cities stand testimony to the Newar’s artistic achievements.
