However there is no dated record showing when the temple of Lord Pashupatinath was first built but it is assumed that it was initially a simple structure of stone of stone proportion which must have been rebuilt a number of times in the course of its development. Vedic performances and Tantric rituals are associated with the worship of Pashupatinath. He is regarded as the supreme self who delivers humans from worldly affliction.

Nagarkot:
Nagarkot is perhaps the best place to view Sunrise and the Himalaya from the comfort of your hotel balcony. Just 35 km from Kathmandu, the village is packed with hotels, stacked up on a ridge facing one of the broadest possible views of the Himalaya. Between October and March a trip to Nagarkot will nearly always be rewarded with a view, but be warned the mountains are notorious for disappearing behind coldly skies on any given day or hour.

The first epigraphic evidence of Nepalese history found in the temple premises during the region of the Lichhavi King Mandeva dating back to 464 AD shows that Changu had already been established as a sacred location in the 3rd century AD. The present structure was probably constructed in the 17th century, though older elements have been incorporated during the restorations. The pagoda style temple has several masterpieces of 5th and 12th century Nepalese art.

Bhaktapur durbar square:
Bhaktapur also known as Bhadgaon means city of devotees. It is a very unique old town of Nepal compare to Kathmandu and Patan. Historically, the city was built in the 9th century (889 AD) during the reign of King Ananda Dev Malla. However, it might be older than that. The city was originally built in the shape of a sacred conch shell which is associated with lord Vishnu, the protecter god in Hinduism. This city divided into 24 traditional locality covers an area of 7 square kilometers and lying at 15 km. east of Kathmandu.
Before the unification of Nepal, Bhaktapur was an independent principality ruled by the Malla King, who were very much devoted to religion, culture, and art.

Dhulikhel:
Dhulikhel is situated about 35 km away from eastern part of Kathmandu and is located about 1550 meter from the sea level. It is an old Newari town and has approximately 16 thousand population there. This town is accessed via the Arniko Highway that connects Kathmandu with the Tibetan border town of Kodari and takes about one hour drive from Kathmandu. It has for many centuries been an important trading centre on the ancient commercial route between Nepal and Tibet. Since time immemorial, Nepali people travel to Tibet to bring home salt and gold. Likewise, Tibetans people every year with their flocks of sheep enter into Nepal during Dashain Festival. They used to purchase chilies and other daily necessities in Nepal and return to their homeland. Drinking water in Dhulikhel is some of the best water in Nepal. It was made with the help of German NGO.

The spectacular snow fed mountains seen from Dhulikhel must be one of the finest panoramic views in the world. When a blue haze covers the lower portion of the mountains, they seem to be floting in the air. With the snowy mountains on the backdrop, Dhulikhel is a stage of immense beauty and a paradise for nature lovers. Green inviting hills of which still virgin and some turned into beautifully carved agricultural terraces cater to the beholder pleasure. Geographically, the plains rise up gradually up to the green mountains and further into the snow-capped Himalayas.
The panorama offers a majestic undisturbed view of the Himalayan ranges stretching from Mount Annapurna in the far west to Mount Karolung in the far East. More than 20 Himlayan peaks including Mt. Annapurna (8091m), Mt. Ganesh Himal (7429m), Mt. Langtang (7234m), Mt. Gaurishanker (7134m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m), so on can be seen in their full glory from the different vantage points in Dhulikhel.
