[an error occurred while processing this directive] The Kathmandu Valley in Nepal is a World Heritage Site. It is home to seven famous tourist attractions, namely the durbar squares of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, as well as the Swayambhunath Stupa, Boudhanath Stupa, Pashupatinath Temple and Changdu Narayan Temple. Each of these is recognised as a World Heritage Site. The total area inscribed as World Heritage Site covers 167 hectares, surrounded by a buffer zone of 70 hectares.

Kathmandu Valley was made a World Heritage Site during the 3rd session of the World Heritage Committee which was held in Luxor, Egypt in 1979. Minor modification was made to the inscription in 2006.
