Swayambhunat

The amazing Swayambhunat is a sacred spot perched on a hill at Kathmandu, Nepal. It consists of an ancient big stupa, the most profound expression of Buddhist symbolism in the country, surrounded by an incredible array of shrines and votive items, most of which have been donated over the past four centuries by kings and lamas.
