World Heritage Sites of Nepal

There are four UNESCO World Heritage Sites(WHS) in Nepal. Of these four WHS, two are in the cultural category and two WHS fall in the natural caregory.

In the cultural category, the seven monuments of the Kathmandu Valley (together counted as one WHS) and Lumbini-the birthplace of Lord Buddha-are included whereas the other two WHS in the natural grouping are the Chitwan National Park and Sagarmatha National Park. The Kathamanu Valley WHS comprises of three historical places of Kathmandu Durbar Square,Patan Durbar Square and Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Two Buddhist stupas-Swayambu and Boudhanath, and two Hindu Templs Pashupatinath ans Changunarayan. The denest concentration of these heritages sites can be found here owing to the cultural and political importance of the Kathamndu Valley. All these monuments were designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in October 1979. Most of the places listed in the WHS were revered for thousands of years and there has been a series of contribution and renovations in the form of construction of temples,stupas and palaces over the centuries by different rulers and kings. The WHS of Nepal are an expression of the finest sensibility of the history and lifestyle of Nepal ans are a legacy of the Nepalese people to human Civilization.
