About Me
My name is Amos Neupane, and I am a Trekking and Tour Operator in Nepal. I love living in Kathmandu because Kathmandu is a capital city of Nepal. Kathmandu is the tourist’s heaven with its rich culture and a vast heritage, the small kingdom of Nepal is blessed with more/less
You have to go to
As there are lots of places to visit in Kathmandu I recommend you to visit Swayambhunath Stupa one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Swayambhunath is a Buddhist stupa atop a hillock at the north western part of the Kathmandu city at an altitude of 1,450 m. This is among the oldest religious sites in Nepal. The Swayambhunath has a huge stupa, number of shrines and temples dating back to the Licchavi period in around 5th century. Tibetan monastery, museum, library are of new addition. Though Swayambhunath is a Buddhist site, it is visited by both Buddhists and Hindu. The stupa consists of a dome at the base; above the dome, there is a cubic structure with the eyes of Buddha looking in all four directions. Swayambhunath is also known as the Monkey Temple as there are holy monkeys living in the north-west parts of the temple. The Tibetan name for the site means ‘Sublime Trees’, for the many varieties of trees found on the hill. Swayambhunath occupies a central position in Nepali Buddhist community. Swayambhunath is probably the most sacred among Buddhist pilgrimage sites.
