After breakfast meets the guide and drives towards Swayambhunath which is on top of the Semgu Hill located in the outskirts to the west of the Kathmandu Valley, Swayambhu stupa is one of the most important religious shrines in the city of Kathmandu. With a white dome stupa and an array of shrines, this place draws people to it daily  Circumnavigating the temple in a clockwise direction is a common practice among the pilgrims since it is believed to wash away all the sins. The sanctum is one of the holiest sites among the Buddhists and Tibetans and is second only to the Lord Boudha for them. After visiting Swayambhunath make your way to Bhaktapur Durbar Square which is located 12 KM away from the capital of the country.

Bhaktapur Durbar Square located in the center of Bhaktapur city is a conglomeration of pagoda and shikhara-style temples grouped around a fifty-five-window palace of brick and wood. The square is one of the most charming architectural showpieces of the Valley as it highlights the ancient arts of Nepal. The golden effigies of kings perched on the top of stone monoliths, the guardian deities looking out from their sanctuaries, and the wood carvings in every place-struts, lintels, uprights, tympanums, gateways, and windows all seem to form a well-orchestrated symphony. The main items of interest in Durbar Square are: The Lion Gate: Dating as far back as A.D. 1696, this gate is guarded on either side by two huge statues of lions. Alongside, there are two stone images of Bhairav (the dreadful aspect of Shiva) and Ugrachandi (the consort of Shiva in her fearful manifestation). Also, you can taste a delicious curd called ‘JU JU DHAU’ which is very famous all over Kathmandu. After visiting Bhaktapur Durbar Square, stop for a lunch somewhere in a nice restaurant and drive back to the Kathmandu hotel. You can utilize the rest of the time for relaxing and preparing for your trip to Pokhara. Dinner and overnight at the hotel.
