Swayambhunath is one of the holiest places of worship in Kathmandu Valley and is situated on a cone-shaped lush peak. It has a grand white arch and sparkling brilliant tower alongside the all-powerful eyes of Buddha (alongside a third eye). If you climb the stairs, you'll pass a plated vajra and encounter two stone lions guarding the door at the best.
The Swayambhunath complex has numerous chaityas, sanctuaries, and painted god pictures dispersed around the site. You'll get to see many monkeys here, as in Pashupatinath, yet maybe in bigger numbers. As of late, numerous new augmentations have come up around the site, including a 57-foot statue of Buddha. Buddha Jayanti, Gunla, and Lhosar are events when thousands of crowd to the hallowed place.
