Siddhi Manakamana is inspired by traditional Newari architecture and brings exquisite Newari craftsmanship to the building. Handcrafted wood by Nepali artisans and hand-laid bricks from local clay create a majestic and restorative ambience.
The hotel features an eco-Buddhist design. A small stupa filled with relics, mantras and "tsa tsa-" (miniature stupas) in the center of the courtyard creates a peaceful and meditative environment while the fountain helps to neutralize negativities and imbalances of the elements. Harvested rainwater is used to minimize the impact of water use in the Kathmandu valley. As you walk through the garden, you can experience a harmonious blend of natural elements and elegant human skill, all surrounded by the blessings of the Stupa.
The hotel boasts of 22 well furnished spacious rooms each with a private balcony over looking into the garden.
Boudhanath, one of the most sacred Buddhist pilgrimage sites and one of the largest stupas in the world, is located 4 kms from Tribhuwan International Airport and 11 kms from the center of Kathmandu city.
It is believed that during the 5th century, an old poultry woman approached the King of the land requesting a piece of land upon which she would get only as much as that covered by the skin of an entire buffalo into thin strips and used that to encircle a large clearing. Upon this site she build a majestic Stupa, with the help of her four sons, who through their noble aspirations were reborn as Guru Rinpoche, Bodhisattva Shantirakshitta, King Trisong Detsen and the King of Yarlung. Today, Boudhanath Stupa is also referred to as a "wish-fulfilling stupa" because of its powerful ability to make wishes come true.
