Vajra first of all offers an architectural feast harmonising beauty and practicality. Doors and windows designed and carved by Utam Raj of Patan, who descends directly from the carvers of the great Durbars of Kathmandu Valley.
Ceiling frescos of the Great Pagoda Room painted by Rinchen Norbu, the great Tibetan Master, wall frescos in the restaurant are painted by Bimal Moktan the outstanding Tamang Painter, are some of the features you will discover here. The site itself, near the powerful Bijeswori temple complex, from which the area derives its name, stands on the age-old pilgrim’s road to Swayambhu.
On any early morning you may join the pilgrims, Nepali, Tibetan, Bhutanese. In fact you may see a Buddhist from any part of the world on their ascent to the great two thousand years old Stupa which offers an extraordinary panorama of the sacred Valley and the high Himalayas.
The Rooftop Gardens of the hotel provides a magnificent morning or sunset panorama of the snowy peaks of the Himalaya, looking directly on the Pagodas of Durbar Square (Center of medieval Kathmandu) and up to the Swayambhu Stupa. A twenty minute’s walk takes you to each.
