Panauti is a picturesque village 35 kilometres South East of Kathmandu, surrounded by rice paddies. It is renowned for its culture, traditions and ancient monuments. It is sometimes called the 4th artistic and cultural heritage site after Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur.
It is cloaked in legend from the past – the mystery of the third invisible river, the temple at the centre of the legend about Shiva’s ligam. It is the site of many wonderful festivals, Malas, which fill the streets with colour, music and celebration.
It is also said to be earthquake proof, with many buildings in Panauti remaining undamaged in the 1934 huge earthquake that flattened much of the surrounding area. Many of the buildings are from the Malla period (13th – 18th centuries) with the Rana period (19th and 20th centuries) also influencing Panauti’s gorgeous architecture.
Panauti was also remarkably unscathed by the 2015 earthquake with the majority of houses only suffering minor cracks despite surrounding villages being completely destroyed.
