So took a taxi today about 30 miles and it took almost 2 hours. The mountain driving suprises me more then even in town. Went to Namo Buddha, it is a place where the son of a king offered his life to a mother tiger so she could keep her babies alive, in doing so he became a Buddha. Came back, and built this temple up on the mountain.

After this we drove to a statue of Shiva, it is 144 ft tall, the largest Vishna statue, made out of copper, cement, tin, i guess whatever they could find. It is under reconstruction so wasnt much to see.

Then to Bhaktapur, one of the oldest cities in Nepal, the Royal palace still standing, made of just rock and teak wood, all hand carved.
