Kathmandu valley  Tour

Thousands of years ago, Katmandu was a big lake. It was called Nagdaha, pond of the serpent. Then, in ancient times, one Bipaswi Buddha came and saw this palace. May be he was God. He wanted to make this place fit for people to live. So he planted a seed of lotus flower in the middle of the pond. After six months, a beautiful lotus flower bloomed in that palace. From that flower a flame would burn. Then, many people from other parts of the country came to see this strange flower. One of them was Bodhisattva Manjushree. He had come to see the strange flame and the flower. When he saw the lake, he thought, “how nice it would be if all the water was drained, and people found place to live!” Then with his sword, he cut Chobhar Hill and drained all water out. After all the water was gone, Katmandu became a beautiful valley. Then, people began to come Katmandu and live there.

Katmandu was not developed city like it is now. A hundred years ago, there was no motor road in Katmandu. There was no electricity. People work in the field. There were only few houses. Few People had shops to sell clothes, salt, oil. People were no educated They live in a joint families. The oldest member would be the head of the family. There were different castes. But mainly there were four castes: Brahmin, Kshetri, vaisya, Sudra.  While talking about caste system, we must not forget King Jayasthiti Malla. He was the king of Nepal from 1382 to 95. He was a good king. He did many good things for the country. He made many temples in Katmandu. He made Ram mandir in pashupatinath. He made Kumbeshwar temple of patan. Then, he divided society into four castes: Brahmin, Kshetri, Vaishya, Shudra. In the same way , Newar community was also divided . Bjracharya, Vaidya were high caste People. Pode, Chyame etc. were the low caste People. Today Katmandu is very well developed. Tere are houses and buildings everywhere. There are roads and vehicles. There are a lot of shops. But there is little open space left. People work in offices and factories these days but kathmandu was completely different in the past.
