The sleeping Bishnu.

Budhanilkantha is about 5m (17 ft) long stone sculpture of Lord Bishnu, lying on a snake coil bed in a water pool, as if floating, with his legs crossed. His four hands hold the four symbols of Vishnu: the chakra (disc), club, and conch-shell and lotus flower. The picturesque stone structure, which is believed, that have been carved in 7th century, draws a great number of Hindu Devotees and tourists’ everyday. The shrine is located about 15 km away from the city center, in the base of Shivapuri Hill.
