Kathmandu: The Ancient Metropolis of the Himalaya

Kathmandu: The Ancient Metropolis of the Himalaya

Kathmandu Durbar Square

It's a place where 90-something groups of people, different in ethnic background, culture, language, religion, life philosophies, found a piece of land and decided to live next to each other.
 
It’s also the place where they all found their peace, bringing together four great cities of the valley into one, The Metropolis of the Himalaya - Kathmandu
 
Recently, I’ve had a chance to visit Nepal briefly, and when I first saw it in front of me, I knew that I was right to have been completely fascinated all of these years, ever since I saw that movie Baraka for the first time. You don’t even have to go to one of many Hindu or Buddhist temples in the city to feel the energy of the place, for it can easily be felt in it’s ancient squares like Durbar or Bhaktapur.
 
That, amongst other reasons, is why I would like very much to go back there over and over again.
