What you can expect

On this half day excursion you’ll admire the traditional architecture and rich culture that are reminiscent of the medieval era. You’ll see women, men, and children sitting in the streets or in common courtyards, weaving, chatting, playing, and working under the sun. As you walk along the streets, you’ll find dozens of masterful wood carvers and sculptors offering you handcrafted items at bargain prices. Most of them work from home and they may even offer you other articles for sale as well. The women spend their spare time weaving, knitting, and hand sewing. However, the village is probably best known for its woodcarvers, whose expertise in their field becomes readily apparent.
In the chowk around the temple you can see the heart of a functioning Newari town. See the many chortens and a huge prayer wheel, clearly pointing to the diverse religious traditions. Between Bungamati and Khokana you’ll find the Karya Binayak Temple, dedicated to Ganesh. The views from this spot are spectacular, and you can look out over the Bungamati valley to the foothills.
You’ll find that no matter where you go in this tiny village, a large 3-storied temple will catch your eye. The temple is dedicated to the local mother goddess, Rudrayeni Mai. A similar temple to the north-east of the village is used during times of epidemics.
