Product Description: 

Beneath the Earth's tallest mountain peaks is the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal. Pokhar, in the center, captivates by its calm. Buddhist and Hindu faiths exist side by side. Phewa Lake contains many fish; it's also a holiday paradise. Mount Everest and Annapurna fascinate all who see them. Kathmandu, capital of Nepal, is a thousand year old city steeped in religion, mystique and tradition. The city of Bhaktapur was founded in the 9th century A.D. and contains twelve Hindu monasteries. Patan is a living museum of art where the pavilion of Chyasilin Deval is dedicated to Krishna. Changu Narayan is one of the most important Hindu sanctuaries and dedicated to the god, Vishnu. Of particular interest is Aruda Narayana Temple with its painted wooden sculptures, shrines and gilded roof.
