Once upon a time, the valley surrounding Kathmandu was a vast lake-trapped by the uprising of the Himalaya. According to legend, the yogi Manjushree saw a secret lotus rising from water and opened channel with his sword to drain the water. So, the Kathmandu valley was born. Today, this natural basin in a patchwork of terraced field and secret temple town that showcase the gallery of the architects and artisans of Nepal. If the Kathmandu is the head of Nepal, the valley could be it’s heart.
