Overview

My name is Narayan Tamrakar, your local host. I would like to welcome you to join me virtually on a live tour in which we explore one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Kathmandu Durbar Square is where Kathmandu’s kings were crowned and where they used to live. It also has a richly decorated house for Kumari, the Living Goddess and manifestation of the great goddess Taleju.

In this tour, we will be exploring and sharing the stories of this  living goddess Kumari and we will visit ‘Freak Street’ a famous hippy hang-out during the late sixties and early seventies.

Of course I will show you the northern part of the square wihich is the most visually stunning part with temples from 16th century including 6th century statue of Kaal Bhairav and the Kasthamandap  temple Some temples were destroyed by the 2015 earthquake and are still under construction.

We will end our tour in front of Taleju temple, the temple which opens only once in a year during the biggest festival celebrated in Nepal called Dashain.

From your couch to Kathmandu

On a Sunday morning me and a group of friends logged into a zoom-call with our guide Narayan. Even tough we were thousands of kilometers away we were teleported right into the middle of Durbar Square. Experiencing the hustle and bustle of the city of Kathmandu, seeing temples and getting interesting insights to the city. Thanks a lot to our guide Narayan who made this short trip quite memorable! All the best!

Wonderful tour of a wonderful city

It's been ten years since I've been to Kathmandu and I absolutely loved the opportunity to see it again - albeit virtually. Narayan ist a great guide, leading you through the busy streets, telling great stories, and letting you soak in the atmosphere of Durbar Square. The audio and video quality is great - not perfect - but very impressive for a live stream from thousands of kilometres away. And in case you were wondering - the tour is really live so we basically went for a Valentine's Day stroll through Kathmandu - pretty memorable!
