Dhulikhel Namo Buddha
Namo means “veneration” or “homage” or “adoration” — Sanskrit and Pali can rarely be reduced just to single-word English equivalents. Amitabha translates roughly as Buddha of Infinite Light in English. Amitabha is the great Buddha of the West. Namo Buddha is a historic place, where Lord Buddha was believed to have offered his flesh to the starving tigress so she could feed her cubs. Namo Buddha is one of the most significant buddhist monasteries near Kathmandu Valley. You can witness a large number of people exploring this monastery. Similarly, you can also see the buddhist monks reading during your visit.
Panauti lies in Kavrepalanchok District in Province No. 3 of Nepal located 32 km Southeast of the capital Kathmandu. One of the finest, purely Newar settlements outside Kathmandu valley is the village of Panauti. Built at the confluence of two rivers within a small valley, this settlement has fine examples of early temple architecture. The Indreshwar Mahadev Temple is of fine proportions and has exquisite carvings that represent early Newari architecture. The roof struts, showing incarnations of Shiva are matchless in their serenity.
