Editorial Reviews

With its three ancient Nepalese royal cities, Kathmandu Valley, at the foot of the mighty Himalayas, contains some of the most precious treasures in Asia along with a truly unique and medieval atmosphere. However, the beauty of this country and its historic buildings have for many years been out of the reach of most foreigners. And even today it is full of mystique.

52 minutes. In English. This tourist video features the three ancient Nepalese royal cities of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan. Swayambhunath, Boudhanath and Pashupatinath are featured in the Kathmandu Valley Of The Gods DVD.

The focus of the Kathmandu section is Durbar Square, including Hanuman Dhoka Palace, Kala Bhairav statue, and Kasthamandap, Trailokya Mohan Narayan, and Mahendreswor Temples. The chaotic streets, markets, and shops are also shown.

Bhaktapur features the Dattatraya and Nyatapole Temples, and Durbar Square, including the Palace of 55 Windows, the Golden Gate, Naga Pokhari, and Vatsala Temple. The peacock window, potters square, narrow alleys, shops, people and kids are also shown.

As opposed to the Malla cities of Kathmandu and Bhaktapur that were mainly influenced by the Hindu religion, Patan was for many years a major Buddhist city. Patan features the 5-story Kumbeshwar Temple, the Mahabouddha Temple of a thousands images of Buddha, the Golden Temple, and Durbar Square.

The history of each city is briefly but well described and is illustrated with the video of the sights. I especially enjoyed the video and commentary of the Golden Temple in Patan. The colour is a bit washed out at times, especially in bright sunlight.
