Alternatively known as Monkey Temple, Swayambhunath is a large area on the top of a hill with a stupa, shrines and temples that is home to many monkeys.  We went on a hot Saturday mid-day and it was busy!  It was great to see all the different people and types of worship done, though we will definitely go back when it is cooler and hopefully not as crowded to get a better chance to explore all the areas Swayambhunath has.

Being around monkeys makes me a little nervous.  We went to a number of monkey temples in India, and learned they can get quite feisty.  We went with no food and kept our distance when we could.

The panorama picture Jeremiah took a couple posts ago was from Swayambhunath, we're hoping next time we visit it is a clear day!
