Heritage sites of Kathmandu valley-Swayanbthnath stupa

It is also known as Monkey temple due to the large population of monkeys here

This is a smaller stupa compared to Boudanath and is located on a hill.One has to climb 365 steps to get to the top.Legend has it that the Buddha himself visited Swayambhunath and gave teachings there two hundred years earlier.
