Swayambhunath Walking Tour

Swayambhunath Stupa, situated at hilltop, is a holy shrine of great antiquity and mystery in the Kathmandu Valley. Its majestic white dome and shimmering golden spire are clearly visible from every corner of the valley. The stupa’s significance as a Buddhist pilgrimage site can be traced back to the 5th century AD, as evidenced by the historical inscriptions on stones surrounding the site.
