|Rani Pokhari or the Queen's Pond|
Rani Pokhari or the Queen's Pond was not really on my list of places to see in Kathmandu, but I ended up passing by more than once. It's located near the center of the city and one of those hard to miss points. It's good sight to see after all. A temple to Shiva in the middle of an artificial lake accessible through a long foot bridge. But the pokhair itself is not open to public most of the days. Only on the day of Bhaitika, which is part of Tihar celebration, the gates are opened to public.
|This used to be the school for boys of the royal family|
As a bonus on my random walks in Kathmandu, I also passed by the royal school. According to locals, this used to be the school for boys of the royal family. Apparently royal family girls did not go to school.
