Day Tour to Medieval Village Kritipur

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect
Kirtipur village has been able to maintain its rusty medieval look and a traditional lifestyle to the amazement of many a visitors. The narrow alleyways, wood-brick-mud houses, cobbled streets, wells, inns and the age old ritual of Newari people takes you back in time.

Uma Maheshwar and Bagbhairab are two most important temples here. Built in 1655 AD Uma Maheswar Temple is perched at an altitude of 1414m commanding a superb view of Himalayan peaks and Kathmandu city. The three storeys Bagbhairab Temple proudly showcases a collection of weapons that were used by Newar troops against the invading forces of King Prithivi Narayan Shah during the Battle of Kirtipur. Chilancho Stupa, Shri Kirti Bihar are also worth a visit.

A hike to nearby Chobhar Hill is surely not to be missed. Legend has it that Manjushree created the gorge using his sword to drain off the water from Kathmandu Valley to make it habitable.

This is an interesting place to visit. The architecture is very interesting, and they were doing a lot of restoration. Still, it is a very poor village. The people are friendly. The Newari food is great. I would not take this as either a half-day...More
