Jaisideval The neighbourhood is named after this large and impressive temple which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Climbing up the steps to the top, one can see the sanctum and a view of the old city (John Child, Streets of Silver, Streets of Gold). Of course, today the complete view is disturbed by awkward tall buildings that have emerged in between the traditional houses. However, this has not stopped the locals from gathering around this temple throughout the day. Therefore, it is still one of the few dynamic public spaces in Kathmandu.
