Ripon Hossain visited at: 2020-09-29

Swayambhu Nath Stupa is extraordinary compared to other spots to visit in Kathmandu. Old spot with an entire parcel of engineering and culture. From that point, you can see the entire Kathmandu valley. Better to go in the daytime and the evening, so you can feel both nonexistent sentiments. We adored this spot. Energetically prescribed to visit.

A gathering of lovely antiquated Temples of blended confidence i.e Hindu just as Buddhist. One of the most established sanctuary on the slope top. There are two different ways to climb. One is part of the way associated with motorable streets and the other is with steps. A troublesome trip. you will get the organization of Monkeys. It was a great experience

Temple is situated on the highest point of the slope where you need to go up by steps. Monkeys are near and while in transit to the sanctuary. From the top wonderful view is opening regulating Kathmandu city. The spot has its energy and climate, quiet and serene.

The Swayambhunath Temple is found high on a slope in Kathmandu, and in light of its recorded importance, it has been assigned as a UNESCO World Heritage site of which Nepal has ten (10) such UNESCO locales. To get to this Temple, you can either make the demanding 365 strides up the slope or take public transportation up the slope on the posterior of the Temple - a lot simpler!
