About 10 km form the capital city of Kathmandu, the temple of Budhanilkanta temple can be found. There is nothing connected to Bhudhism here. Bhudha Nilkanta is said to mean the Old Bluethroated God. Again another confustion in the name. Usually the name Nilkanta is attributed to Lord Shiva - but is a temple of Lord Vishnu. Nevertheless the Budhists also visit temple to offer prayers here. And the Saivaits claim that claim a reclining image of Shiva can be seen under the waters of the lake during the annual Shiva festival there in August. These apart, the temple a beautiful one attracting thousands of pilgrims round the year. The 5m reclining Vishnu on the Athisesha in a pool of more than 10m is a great awesome site. People can offer worship from the padam side . A must visit in Nepal.

A very interesting open air temple containing the carved stone figure of the sleeping Lord Vishnu. It is a very large stone carving in a deep pool and the Lord Vishnu is revered by thousands of visiting Hindus each year
