Additional Information

Nagarjun Hike

Nagarjuna Jamachho is known as Shivarpuri National park and very suitable day hiking place near the center of Kathmandu. Deep forest National park covering 159 square kilometers is rich in flora and fauna as well as numerous bird species.

Further, On top of the hill, Jamacho lies at an altitude of 2128 meters. It provides the best view of the northern Himalayan range and Kathmandu valley. A Jamacho monastery lies on top of the hill and is sacred for Buddhist pilgrimage. There are several specific dates to gather more people for the special function of Jamacho Monastery.


The history place Balaju dates back to the mid-18th century. That was when a Malla king ordered to build of 22 stone water sprouts. Located in the heart of balaju, this place “Baisdhara” got its name from those twenty-two water sprouts where “bais” means twenty-two and “Dhara” means the taps. All of the taps are beautifully crafted with water monsters. And i.e. crocodiles with curled tanks, ferocious teeth, stretching eyes, and tongues aflame. It is said that the artist had never seen a crocodile. Yet he managed to make such a detailed replica out of his imagination.

Along with them, there is a replica of the Budhanilkantha within this park. So it can be cited as one of the famous destinations for devotional tourists. It is located near the Shitala Mai temple, where there lies a large holy pool of untouched water in which the stone image of Lord Vishnu reclines on the bed of snakes. As this is similar to Budhanilkantha, it fails to be as perfect and peaceful as the original.

Legend says that once a Malla king had transported the holy water of Budhanilkantha to this palace, this made the lord furious. As a result, on that very night, the king had a dream in which Lord Vishnu’s blue throat appeared. And the Lord warned the kind that the king and even his coming generations would die if they ever saw the reclining image of the god a Budhanilkantha. Furthermore, Due to this, the King installed his own copy of Budhanilkantha at Balaju.
