A collection of delighted columns, this work, reflects the passion the author felt for Kathmandu.

The land of stupas and hawkers, hippies and tourists, forgotten shrines and temples, the home of the Pashupatinath and the Living Goddess Kumari, Doig was completely enchanted by the city.

An artist's impression of the emerald valley acompanied with his vivid sketches and research by Dubby Bhagat are lively poignant and reminiscent of a forgotten era.


Dubby Bhagat has been a salesman, a journalist, and advertising copywriter, a guide and a hotelier in The Everest Hotel, Nepal's premier five-star property. With his mentor Desmond Doig, he helped to design The Malla Hotel and The Shangri-la. He lives in Kathmandu.
