Baisdbhara, also known by the name “Balaju Water Garden” is an ideal choice for rest inside Kathmandu Valley. The peaceful environment in Baisdhara will hold your soul in harmony and calmness. Situated to the north-west of Kathmandu, it was established in the 18th century.
Baisdhara means twenty-two waterspouts, and hence we can say that there is a row of twenty-two lines of waterspouts in the garden which is the main attraction of the garden. Those waterspouts have an ornately carved crocodile head, and it is believed that the twenty-two waterspout was built in the mid-eighteenth century. The garden gives a broad view of the urban settlement and industry( Balaju Industrial State)nearby. People come here to bathe during the annual festival, on the day of Baishak Purnima. The garden rests in the shade of a lush forest of Rani Ban and is enriched with the greenery of the Rani Ban forest. Spreading over 162 ropanis of land, the garden has an Olympic-size swimming pool which is a significant feature of the garden.
The vista of greenery, aroma of plants and the melodious sounds in the garden will make you completely relaxed. The garden also offers you the beautiful view of the statue of sleeping Vishnu in the pond. The garden is famous for a picnic spot, sightseeing, and place for relaxation.
