Sankhu was once an important post on the trading route between Katmandu and Lhasa and although the town’s flower has faded, you can still see many signs of its former prosperity.  Although many traditional signs aspects of Newari life continue here, the most persuasive reason  to visit is the beautiful Vajrayoggini Temple complex a 2km walk northeast of town.
