Swayambhunath in Kathmandu, is a sacred Buddhist temple which sits atop a tree covered hill to the west of the city. It is more commonly known as the Monkey Temple, after the hundreds of holy monkeys which call it home. Adorned in Tibetan prayer flags and religious offerings, it is a perfect place to soak up the sights and sounds of Nepal's capital city.
