Pokhara’s Old Town is a stark contrast against its lakeside demeanour. Be prepared to take a step back in time and be surprised at how much history is hidden in every corner. Renowned for its Newri architecture and the charming Old Bazaar, this area makes for a good walk and a great place to people watch. The Bindyabasini temple will be the highlight of your time in Old Town. It is one of Pokhara’s most religiously important sights. Then there is the small but worthy Bhimsen temple and the array of shops selling Hindu and Buddhist paraphernalia. You won’t realize when a couple of hours just breeze by here.
