The Changu Narayan Temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is a significant cultural and religious monument in Nepal. The temple is believed to have been built in the 4th century AD by the Licchavi King Mandev and has undergone several renovations over the centuries.
The temple’s architecture is a unique blend of Nepali and Indian styles, with intricate carvings and sculptures depicting Hindu gods and goddesses. The temple is also home to a collection of ancient inscriptions and stone sculptures that date back to the Licchavi period.
Changunarayan is located on a hilltop, and from the temple, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding valley. The village is also known for its traditional Newari architecture, which can be seen in the houses and buildings in the area.
