Additional Information

Introduction

Located on a hill west of the Kathmandu metropolitan area, Swayambhunath Stupa is an ancient Buddhist temple and is listed as a UNSECO World Heritage Site. Because there are many monkeys here, they are also called "monkey temples". When you come to the Monkey Temple, you will see the golden stupa in the center. Although it is smaller than the Bodha Big Stupa, which looks similar to it, it stands out on the top of the mountain. In addition to the pagoda, there are some other temple buildings on the top of the mountain, and you can also overlook the scenery under the observation deck.
