         Kasthamandap (The wooden house)

      Kasthamandap is the three storied pagoda style building with an open air ground level.The building is partially whitewashed, and sometimes red cloth streamers are hung under the roof’s eaves.
   Kasthamandap’s age is uncertain, but there is a plaque inside that dates to 1048 ,and this alone is enough to make the building one of the oldest known structures in Nepal .It is almost certain that  Kathmandu was named for Kasthamandap, given that the pavilion was located between  the two ancient hamlets that merged to form the old city .Perhaps this structure or one much like it stood here that long ago .We know that the current building was here in 1048 but we don’t know how old it was then .
   Where historians must be cautious, mythology offers a ready account for the origins of this pavilion .once upon the time, it is said ,the god of wood came to Katmandu in the form of a handsome young man in order to watch one of the city ‘s colourful festivals . He was recognized by a tantric priest ,who bound him u to the spot by mean of spell. A negotiation ensued between the trapped god and  the priest .”Ask for a boon”, said the god,and I will grant it in  return for my release .
   The priest asked for wood to build a temple, and his wish was granted with one condition-that the temple would not be consecrated until the price of rice and salt became equal. The deal was struck, the god vanished ,and the next morning at the spot on which the god had been bound there stood a gigantic celestial tree. The tree was so large that both the Kastamandap and Silyan Sattal –the building to the far left with the gilded lions at its corners –were said to have been constructed from its wood .
   It served as a rest house and in 1379 was converted into a shine for the saint Gorakhnath(orange coloured figure in the centre of the building )and lodgings for his devotees.On the four corners of this building ,you can also see the images of Ganeshas(the elephant god who is also known as the god of wisdom).These four Ganeshas on four corners symbolically represent the four famous Ganeshas’ temple erected at four different corners in four different directions of this valley. They are Karya Vinayaka in north, Surya Vinayaka in east, Jal Vinayaka in south and Ashok Vinayaka it is located in the west direction but now it falls in the heart of city.

         Kal Bhairab
   Bhairab is a  destructive aspect of Shiva. Kal can translate  from the Sanskrit  and Nepali as either ?death? or ?time?. It is fashioned out of  one single stone .It shows Bhairava standing on a prostrate evil doer.This image present the very dynamic and terrifying nature of the god .it is slightly bent at the knee as if it is ready to spring .It has six arms .Two of them are held in front of him giving an impression of gentleness and  calm .The other arms in contrast represent the horrifying aspect of  Bhairava.Two of the arms hold a trident and along black sword threateningly. In one of  his left hands ,he holds a red disk while in the other ,he grasps three severed heads by their hair.You can also see a garland of human heads in his neck and human skulls in his headdress-all in order to terrify evil being .The huge image is guarded by two white stone lions that served to emphasis the terror of  the work by crouching open mouthed and by seeming ready to pounce upon  the evil doers.
   This sculpture was found at 17th century by King Pratap Malla while constructing the underground water channels from Nagarjun forest. It is very old sculpture and it believed to be of 6th century.
   It say that when the King Pratap Malla tries to build the temple for the Kal Bhairawa .Bhairawa didn?t agree to be kept in the Temple because he is the lord of justice and have to see the justice every time and even have to fly every time  to see the justice so he isn?t kept in the Temple .Since he is the lord of justice it is said that if some one lied in front of this image ,he would vomit blood and die. You  know that when there is a dispute ,one of the two parties always lies and because of its reputation ,no one dared to lie in front of it . Therefore ,justice was served at no cost.

            KUMARI TEMPLE

         In the Katmandu Valley different styles of temples are popular like Pagoda style, Stupa style, Krishana Temple style and Harmya style. The Harmya style looks like a residential house because it is like a Vihar where monks live. In this style, you will find a courtyard surrounded on all four sides by residential buildings. In Harmya Style generally the deity of the temple is placed straight behind the front gate .In this shrine you will see no image inside because it is the home of the Living Goddess Kumari until she reaches puberty.
 To be a Kumari the girl must be from Shakya family and a chosen few are subject to further trails, including? tests for the 32nd virtue, courage. The candidate children spend a night in the cellars of the Taleju temple amid bloody buffalo heads, while men in masks try to scare them. If a girl is Taleju herself she should show no sign of fright even if she is only four or five years old. If she able to do all task she will be selected and be Kumari until she reaches puberty. But accurate time of puberty can not be predicted it may be from 10 to 14 yrs ,so always there is another one standby goddess. If  the Kumari reach puberty it is exchange with the new Kumari ,then the retired Kumari can go back to her family and live an ordinary citizen .she can go to school and collage and can even get married .
   This Kumari god is related to both Buddhists and Hindus .As Kumari come from Shakya?s family and Shakya?s believe in Buddha .In fact Lord Buddha himself was born in a Shakya family. Buddhists consider her a Buddhist goddess and call her Bajra Devi. Where as in Hindu consider Kumari the virgin goddess, a representation of goddess Taleju.
   In this Kumari Ghar Crafts man ship is very high standard. The large windows on the first floor have the peacock design. Peacock design is very famous in the past as peacock is very colorful and beautiful bird and is associated with Hindus as well as Buddhist?s gods. The first peacock design windows is situated in Bhaktapur
And only the windows even the pillars are also carved and this achieves a pleasant balance of simplicity and intricacy .Here in pillar Shiva linga and yoni(female sex organ)is intricate in the symbolic manner .Outside of the house is decorated with Hindus deities where as the inside contains many Buddhist icons like replica of Swayambhu nath in the centre of the courtyard, Image of  Pancha Buddha?s in the opposite of the main gate .
   Let  us talk something about the living goddess. It is believed that the kings of Katmandu in the late Middle ages had the power to meet the goddess Taleju in person and seek her advice. The Malla dynasty?s ruler used to meet mother goddess Taleju Bhawani since her inception in Katmandu hundreds nof years ago .However the goddess was not to be seen by a female in which she would depart from Katmandu .Nevertheless,the inevitable happened during the reign of king Trailokya Malla who ruled in the late 16th century .He was playing dice with the goddess when his daughter peeped into the room. This destroyed the special relationship between the king and the goddess. She stopped visiting him. The king did not know what to do or how to be back in her favors. After sometime the goddess appeared in the king?s dream and commanded him to select a young virgin from the Shakyas of Newar community and install her as her representative .Thus the Goddess Kumari was introduced.
   This present temple was built during 18th century. This is also a product of Dream of  king Jai Prakash Malla that he would lose his kingdom if he did not give the Kumari a fine Palace .To seek her divine blessings he got this Kumari choke constructed. He believed in ?Kumari Tantra? .It says that the enemy can not defeat the person who established Kumari in his kingdom.

Is Swayambu Temple located at Kathmandu? I can see a sprawling city below, i am quite surprised as all i know about Nepal is the rural scenery, just mountains and lovely rivers and valleys.
