Namo Buddha, a beautiful and artistic monastery is the major highlight. According to Buddhist mythology, it is a place where the great prince SemchenChenpo had sacrificed himself to fulfill the hunger of the Cubs for a tigress. The hungry tigress had just given birth to her young cubs and she was unable to move because of hunger and weakness that was noticed by the great prince SemchenChenpo. Unable to see the misery, the prince sacrificed himself in front of the tigress and willingly became her food to revive her from hunger and weakness. Therefore, the Namo Buddha monastery is a symbol of sacrifice and generosity. Later, end our Dhulikhel- Namo Buddha- Balthali- Khopasi tour by visiting Balthali and Khopasi.
