Monkey on a Monkey Temple

Photograph of a Monkey walking along Swayambhunath Monkey Temple

Swayambhunath Monkey Temple, Kathmandu Nepal

A little about ...   How to travel here ...

Swayambhunath is commonly known as the Monkey temple due to all the Rhesus Macaques that live there.

The monkeys are fond of pickpocketing and taking food right from peoples hands or bags so be careful!

Swayambhunath can easily be a part of a cheap easy one day Kathmandu travel itinerary.
