Centuries old and seemingly frozen in time, Changu Narayan represents one of the oldest temples in Nepal and an exquisite example of Licchavi-era architecture. Dedicated to the god Vishnu, the temple sits at the top of a hill surrounded by a forest. Walk inside to see a figure of Vishnu's consort Garuda, or stroll around the building to spot sculptures relating to the god's various incarnations.
