Back to sightseeing in Kathmandu we walked up to Swayambhunath, a buddhist temple on a hill just west of Kathmandu. It's known as the "monkey temple" because they are everywhere--stealing peoples guavas and popsicles! It was a busy Saturday --lots of Buddhists and Hindus (there is also a Hindu temple) visiting to worship there.

Regreso a los sitios en Kathmandu. Caminamos hacia el templo Buddha llamado Swayambhunath. Tambien es llamado el templo de los monos porque hay muchos y se roban las guyavas y paletas de las personas.

Swayambhunath stupa- under renovation--looks like they are painting new eyes. In the foreground is the Hindu temple and many small shrines.
