The temple is built in pagoda style and is located on the banks of the Bagmati River. It is reported that more than one million Hindus visit here at the time of Shiva Ratri – Lord Shiva’s birthday.

Most of the inhabitants follow Buddhism. Bouddhanath Stupa is located nearby. It is an octagonal mandala structured stupa where Lord Buddha is believed to have worshipped. This is a holy site for Buddhists. The stupa is the largest in southern Asia and local people and tourists alike flock here to socialize and pray. The atmosphere is colorful and relaxed and you could find yourself visiting here more than once. Bouddhanath is also known as ‘Little Tibet’ because the surrounds resemble Tibet, with Tibetan culture and traditions on display.

It is located on a hill and offers spectacular views of the Kathmandu valley. Swoyambhunath is also known as the Monkey Temple and is home to many monkeys. The dome here has a pyramid-shaped metal structure on top. At the base of that metal structure are the eyes of Buddha in all four directions.Swoyambhunath means ‘Self-Existing’, describing that when the valley was empty, Swoyambhu was already here.
