Namobuddha is a place dedicated to Mahasattva, a young prince who sacrificed his own life to feed a weak, hungry tigress and her cubs. According to the Buddist sutras, he was an incarnation of Shakyamuni Buddha. As pain or trouble can’t be ignored in Buddhist teachings, Mahasavtta is an example of Dedication. His brothers built a monastery here in their brother’s remnants. A story from which you can learn the way of life and discover yourself. Namobuddha is a place you want to visit to experience the Buddhist culture and lifestyle.
While most people prefer to hike about 3 hours from Dhulikhel, you can also drive to the base of the Namobuddha. The terrain is beautiful and a little rough which is best for Mountain biking starters. Buddha statues are glaring with beauty surrounding the monastery too.
