Monkey Temple Tours
Symabhunath also popular as the "Monkey Temple" among the foreign visitors. Syambhunath stupa sits atop its hill. It is one of the most peaceful places where the chanting of the mantras fills the soul of the visitors with calmness. The hilltop of Symabhu is popular for its panoramic view of the entire Kathmandu city.
Swambhu means "self-existent one". It is believed that this Chitra (stupa) was built in the 13th century by King Mandev and since then it is an important center of Buddhism. The stupa rests on a hilltop 3 km west of the Kathmandu city. It is believed that it evolved spontaneously when the valley was created out of a primordial lake more than 2,000 years ago. It is one of the oldest stupas of Nepal and has many monasteries and shrines in its premises.
The stupa of the Syambhunath sits at the hilltop. The exceedingly 365 steep stone lead to the top of the shrine but it is quite a challenge. One can even take a road and drive to the hilltop. A large number of Hindus and Buddhist are seen visiting here. This is the perfect place to see religious harmony in Nepal.
Symanbhunath stupa is the hallmark of faith and harmony for centuries and the glory of Kathmandu has started from this point. The Kathmandu city was once a lake. Legends say that Syambhunath was evolved out of a lotus that had bloomed in the center of the lake. On the pedestal of the western boundary of Buddha is the largest image of Sakyamuni Buddha. There is a temple of the Goddess of learning "Manjusri or Saraswati" which is situated behind the hilltop of the Syambhunath.
The premises of Syambhunath is filled with the statues, images, and shrines of Buddhist and Hindu deities. The bottom of the hill completely surrounded by prayer wheels. The devotees are seen circulating at stupa all the time. The entire jungles of the hill is filled with colorful prayer flags.
On the eastern side of the stupa, one can see the Vajra 'thunderbolt'. The Buddha statue is on the west side of Syambhu. The statue of sleeping Buddha can also be seen in Syambhunath.
