The main Shiva temple is most noted for its gold-painted roof and silver coated doors in each four directions. This holy site is also famous for the open public crematorium.

It is the must visit site for the Tibetan Buddhists since the legend of the Stupa is related to the Tibetans. Almost Tibetan settlement area with dozens of monasteries in its surroundings. This ancient Stupa has 108 images of deities and 147 insets of prayer wheels adorning the base of the huge dome.
Swayambhunath Stupa (the Monkey Temple): Swayambhunath is a widely known Buddhist monument on a hillock, to west of central Kathmandu. The shrine is approximately 2600 years old and is still a glorious and eye-catcher for the visitors. Because of the presence of holy and tricky monkeys in the premises of the monument, the stupa is also known as the Monkey Temple. A common temple for both Hindus and Buddhists in the complex of stupa symbolizes religious tolerance in Nepal.
