lovely views of the Kathmandu Valley

As seen in the photos, the Buddha eyes are look down from the top of the stupas with a contemplating look. Swayambhunath is the most popular Buddhist temple in Nepal and is also known as the Monkey Temple, WATCH OUT! Be careful with them, they are little thieves. There are also lovely views of the Kathmandu Valley.

A must when you're in Kathmandu

Visiting this Buddhist temple is a must when you're in Kathmandu, for a couple reasons really. First, it's a gorgeous temple, with great views of the city, a small market in the interior. Second, it's full of monkeys! You have to be careful when you go up the stairs which lead to the entrance because they don't stop hollering and running around. But it's really cute to see the little ones.
