Vajra first of all offers an architectural feast harmonizing beauty, practicality and safety.

Phil Hawes, its chief architect was associated with Frank Lloyd Wright and taught graduate architecture with Bruce Goff, the two great promoters of organic architecture. While building the Hotel Vajra, Hawes synergized the traditions of the pagoda style roofing's of Nepal’s greatest architect Arniko and the use of local materials with the most modern earthquake proof techniques.

The mastery of Nepal's highly skilled artisans' community reflects in Vajra's doors and windows which are designed and carved by Utam Raj of Patan. The ceiling frescos of the Great Pagoda Room and pagoda bar are painted by Rinchen Norbu the great Tibetan Master and his associates. Wall frescos in the restaurant are painted by Bimal Moktan the outstanding Tamang Painter. These are some of the features you will discover in Hotel Vajra.

The Vajra is situated on the foothills of the Swayambhunath Stupa and its age old pilgrim road, also near the Bijeswori Temple complex, two of the power places of the Kathmandu Valley. The Vajra is surrounded by trees and flower trail gardens, creating a place of serenity and beauty, overlooking the entire Kathmandu Valley up to the snow peaks of the Himalayas. And on any early morning you may join the pilgrims – Nepali, Tibetan, Bhutanese, in-fact, you may see a Buddhist from any part of the world on their ascent to the great 2000 years old Swayambhunath Stupa.



Hotel Vajra is located on the slopes of the Swayambhunath Stupa also known as the Monkey Temple. Vajra's location offers from its rooftop terraces a breathtaking view of both the Kathmandu Valley and the surrounding mountains. The Hotel is about a 10 minutes walk from Thamel, which is known to be the tourist center of Kathmandu with a variety of shops and restaurants. Durbar Square, the ancient city center of Kathmandu, is only a 20 minute walk from the Hotel. click here to view location map

Guests Reviews

The reason I came back this year is because of the treatment I received last year. You have a top notch staff that tends to every need. The menu is one of the best esp. the desert "Sikarni". The roof tops are very restful with a cold drink and a book.
