  • Nice place to visit with family. Kids will enjoy the Play area inside the resort nearby. There is a nice resort nearby and many restaurants on the way here. Big Parking space is available nearby. Lord Shiva statue is very big (biggest statue in Nepal), and it has been a religious tourist attraction since it opened to public. You can plan a fun Saturday visit with family here.
  • Its a beautiful place, on a hill. The area name is "sanga". Its about 30 kilometers from Kathmandu city in Nepal. it's a theme park, a beautiful, tall, lord Shiva Statue is there. Nice view. There is a restaurant and bar also where you can get authentic north Indian food with various drinks, rooms for stay is also available in a beautiful resort.
