स्वयम्भुनाथ स्तुपा

1 save

Recommendation by Lemi

Ascend 365 steep stone steps up a hill to Swayambhunath, commonly known as Monkey Temple. Friendly little primates will keep you company along the way up, and at the top you are rewarded with sweeping views of the area! Stay for the picture-perfect sunset and behold hundreds of the holy monkeys reclaim the temple once night falls. The site incorporates both Hindu and Buddhist shrines. Its main feature is a stupa, topped with a gilded tower. The spire is painted with Buddha’s eyes looking out onto the valley and the sight of worshipers below!
