The Garden of Dreams, a neo classical historical garden, is situated in the midst of Kathmandu city, Nepal. The Garden's design has much in common with formal European gardens: paved perimeter paths, punctuated by pavilions, trellises, and various planting areas, surrounded by a sunken flower garden with a large pond at its center. It is an architectural landscape that encourages the visitor to stroll around and discover the Garden's treasures from many different vantage points.

A very beautiful garden area that will make you forget about the busy streets of kathmandu. Just 200 rupees entry, it is definitely worth a visit to take some photos and relax in the cafe.

It is more expensive than cafes on the streets, that is definitely. But if money is not issue and you want to escape the dust and sounds from the streets, than it is a good place to do so.
