Panauti is a quaint and interesting destination south-east of the Kathmandu valley. When you enter the town it feels like it is exactly the way it was when the founders built the town. A nostalgic environment covers the narrow town streets and ancient structures. Visitors to this place will often find colourful stones, petals and other items laid out on the street as a sign to welcome everyone visiting Panauti. Panauti is regarded as a very holy site by a lot of Hindus because of the confluence of the two rivers-Roshi Khola and Punyamata Khola. A visit to this place is considered to free all souls from sins and anxiety.
