Nepal Culture Tour is one of the complete tour packages in Nepal that allows you to immerse yourself into the country’s deep-rooted unique culture and explore its uniqueness, richness, and authenticity in just one week.
Nepal is a museum of customs and traditions. It is a country of cultural bliss and its culture differs from cultural practices around the globe. Foremost, the country used to be the only Hindu kingdom in the world. But later, the nation was replaced by the federal republic. Nepal is a secular state now. Still, no wonder Hinduism dominates Nepal.
Moving on to another fact, Nepal is the birthplace of Lord Buddha–the founder of Buddhism. Buddhist followers dominate the Himalayan area. There are many stupas, monasteries, and places built in honor of the Lord Buddha. Likewise, Buddhism is the second religion in terms of the population following the faith in Nepal.
On your 7 days Nepal Culture Tour, one can experience the religious melange of Hinduism, Buddhism, and many other religions.
Pashupatinath temple, the holiest temple of Lord Shiva, lies in Nepal. The temple has high religious significance. Each year, thousands of Hindu tourists around the globe come to Nepal to visit this temple. It comes in the top list of any religious tour of Hindus in the country.
The temple area comprises many ancient temples, idols, and statues at the Bagmati Riverbank. Even though only Hindus may enter Pashupatinath’s main temple, there are other places to visit for other religious followers.
The daily worship (Aarati) on the bank of the Bagmati River has the power of healing. It drives away all the negative vibes and fills our bodies with positive energy. The cremation site is also a major attraction to the place. It helps you know the death rituals of Hindu people, i.e., how the dead body is burnt after the death rites. Again, burning the body after death is not common in other religions.
The Sadhus, in colorful dress and unique attire, are the other major attractions of the temple. The temple is one of UNESCO’S World Heritage Sites in Nepal. Thus exploring the Pashupatinath temple is a great joy.
Henceforth, the Culture Tour in Nepal lets you get insights into the cultural practices of Hinduism.
Swayambhunath stupa is a symbol of peace and a holy place for Buddhist pilgrims. The complex comprises stupa, shrines, temples, and monasteries that lie on the hilltop. The stupa is a big white dome with a golden spire on the top of the dome with Buddha’s eyes and eyebrows lonking at all sides.
As per mythology, Kathmandu used to be an enormous lake. A legendary man named Manjushree cut a hill with his sword to allow the lake’s water to pass out of the valley. Also, there was a lotus on the lake that sat in the same place where the stupa sits now.
Besides the stupa, there are many colossal statues of Buddha, monasteries, and other shrines around the complex. Many Buddhists visit this place as it holds principal value amongst the Buddhist people. Also, the stupa is on the charts of UNESCO’S World Heritage Sites in Nepal. Nepal Culture Tour is a standout amongst other approaches to finding the cultural varieties of Nepal.
Located around 11 kilometers away from the center of Kathmandu is another stupa famous as the Boudhanath stupa. It is a beautiful and large stupa placed on a massive three-layered Mandela. The prominent white dome structure of the stupa sits upon a three-layered whitewashed Mandela, one of the world’s largest stupas.
The white color of the structure gives a peaceful and soothing look to this monumental structure. Above the white dome lies a golden spire with Buddha’s eyes on all sides.
It is one of the popular sites for Buddhist people for prayers. The colorful prayer flags and prayer wheels give an authentic look to the stupa. In the morning and evening, the place receives many devotees performing a kora around the structure. Like Swayambhunath stupa, even Boudhanath stupa makes its place in UNESCO’S World Heritage Sites charts.
Above all, these stupas will give you an insight into Buddhism and its culture and practices during your Nepal Culture Tour.
With this Nepal Culture Tour, you can get some insights into Nepal’s vibrant art and history. In Nepal’s medieval period, Malla kings who had a great taste in art and architecture ruled Kathmandu. So, they spent a lavishing life in some boutique-style palaces with beautiful shrines and temples.
