We started Pagoda over a decade ago to provide travelers a second home. Rest assured, you will always be with your family and friends. You will be with us!

"All saints can do miracles, but few of them can keep a guest house." Mark Twain.
"Rabin + Sharmila keep the best guest house in Bhaktapur."
Michael Davis, Australia.

"For nearly three months, the 'Pagoda Guest House' has been our home. Whilst we have visited other parts of Nepal and India, we have always returned here to a warm family welcome. Thank you for the delicious food and ginger tea, for your constant hospitality, generosity, warmth and attention. Thank you for sharing with us your family photographs, your funny stories, and many evenings of laughter and friendship. Being here with you, we have had the time of our lives!"
Tim Akkouh & Aimee Daruwala, England.

"We came to Nepal for a Holiday and met wonderful people. We came to Bhaktapur looking for a room and met wonderful friends. You are the reason why so many people will return to Nepal. Rabindra & Sharmila have the friendliest Guest House we have seen - it’s like coming home to family and friends."
David Underwood, Australia.
