  • The mighty lord Shiva is standing so tall here. You need to pay at the gate for your entry. Such a lovely place. Almost always full with people.  more »
  • On the plate, it is written that this is the highest statue of Shiva in the world. Fully building has not been completed, but the statue, at least, without forests. Is very picturesque, on top of a huge Hill. Is close to Bhaktapur, on the road to Dulikhel. Entrance 100-200 rupees, was with the Guide, therefore, is not convinced.
