Tau Daha | Lake
Taudaha is a historic lake that lies on the way to Dakshinkali Temple from Kathmandu.It has recently been given a face-lift and has become a popular place to visit among the valley people. The lake was created by God Manjushree as a home for the serpents who lost their home when the valley was drained. Legend has it that the King of the Naga (or Serpents) - Karkotak resides to this day in the epicenter of the lake. The walls of his palatial home are said to be richly decorated with sapphires, rubies and other precious stones.
