Trip Planner: Asia / Nepal / Central Region / Bagmati Zone / Kathmandu Valley / Kathmandu / Garden of Dreams
Escape the city hubbub and retreat to Garden of Dreams, a peaceful garden complex renowned for its scenic pavilions. Also known as the “Garden of Six Seasons," it was built in 1920 for Field Marshall Kaiser Sumsher Rana and was abandoned after his death in the 1960s. Today, restored with help of the Austrian government, it remains a landmark of Kathmandu and a popular spot for a relaxing stroll. Roaming the lush gardens, you can admire Edwardian-style inspired fountains, birdhouses, gazebos, and other picturesque decorations.

It has a great variety of plants and flowers, all very well maintained, there are a couple of restaurants, good bathrooms and beautiful places to take photos.
It is a lovely peaceful place in the middle of a busy city. The cafe/restaurant has some nice meals on the menu. I only had the snacks but they were nice. Also a pleasant place to have a beer in the open air.
In a busy city area this little gem is worth its weight in gold. Quiet, peaceful, it really lives up to its name. The garden also has multiple bars to relax and unwind with a quiet drink and decent food. There is a small entry fee that is well worth paying.
