Picture Of The Month
Mr. Sapan Chakraborty from Tappas Voyages visited Kathmandu, Nepal and captured the photograph of Swayambhunath Stupa.

Swayambhunath Stupa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most ancient of all the holy shrines in Kathmandu valley. It is perched atop a hill on the western edge of the Kathmandu Valley and was founded about 2000 years ago. Swayambhunath Stupa is also called the `Monkey Temple' because of the many hundreds of monkeys scamper about the temple. The main approach to this temple is from the eastern side, where you need to take 365 ancient steps to reach the stupa. The main building and artwork of central dome has rich Buddhist influence. This place also offers panoramic view of ancient Kathmandu City.
