Swayambhunath is also renowned as "Monkey Temple". It is a perfect place to see the entire Kathmandu valley and lots of monkeys playing around. Be careful while carrying your stuffs because they snatch your goods. Also this place is famous for meditation and one of the holy place for Buddhist as well as Hindus!
