Statue is one the way to Kathmandu , not exactly in city center, as this city is big, you need more than 2-3 days if you really wish to explore the same. It is nice place to be, felt peace really.

it has been one of the best place to be and you can have the religious touch over here to be. It is also known as Jal narayan and provides you the blessing from Lord vishnu sleeping in Sesh Naga.
