Then we move to Pashupatinath Temple, one of the most sacred Hindu shrines across the world.
As we head back to your hotel, you will stop to visit Bouddhanath, which is among the largest Stupas in South Asia and is heavily influenced by Tibetan Buddhism. That is the reason why Boudhha is also called as ‘Little Tibet’.
