Aashapuri precisely means a place where your wishes come true. The term Aasha means the wishes and puri means a place in the Nepalese language.
Here, the Aashapuri reforms the shape of a sacred temple, lying on the bank of the two rivers. It is a Shiva temple thus every Monday, especially on the month of Shrawan, a lot of devotees pay a visit over there in the belief that they would have a good and prosperous life if they please the Bholenath (Mahadev).
Besides, it seems full of devotees on the day of Shivaratri and Teej too.
The site is quite awe-inspiring for green panthers too. A two and a half-hour hike from Doleshwor Mahadeva via different settlements and lush woods wouldn’t be a waste to attempt.
If you plan a day hike to do in Bhaktapur, then this destination could be a perfect one.
No, it doesn’t. It lies at Suryabinayak municipality in the south-east hill station of Bhaktapur.
It is famous for the sacred Aashapuri temple and hiking.
You could choose a local bus or hire a private vehicle to reach over there.
No, you don’t need to pay any entrance fee to enter there.
No, there are only a few shops that offer you a quick lunch.
Yes, it is. Even a single woman could travel here alone. Yet I suggest you accompany a guide.
Well, there are a lot of things that you can do like shopping, sightseeing, eating different foods, also photography. But, capturing one corner of the square and having a sunset view would be the most satisfying thing that you would experience.
While being in Bhaktapur, you must mind few things like taking out of your shoes while entering the temple and other religious sites. Likewise, you might not be allowed to click pictures of some specific events or places. You should consider these things.
As we informed you earlier it is all safe for solo traveling which means you can travel without a guide. But we also recommend you to have a certified guide who would help you to understand the authentic Bhaktapur and the stories carved all over the monuments.
