Buddhism in Kathmandu
Legends say that the area where Kathmandu is located was once submerged under a lake. It was Buddhist god Manjushri who cut open a hill to the south and enabled the water to flow out thereby making the region habitable.

Today, Kathmandu is the best place to explore Buddhism in Nepal. This is because it is home to all the ethnic groups of Nepal. Also, quiet a few famous Buddhist shrines and colleges make it a wonderful destination for any Buddhist tourist.
