Swayambhunath Stupa - Monkey Temple


Check out this drone videos of one of the great cultural landmarks of Nepal, compliments of contributor c13studio.  It's called the Swayambhunath, and it's located on a hill west of the city of Katmandu.  It's one of oldest religious sites in the country, having been founded in the sixth century AD.  While it is most closely associated with the Buddhist religion, it's also considered to be religiously significant to Hindu's.  Sometimes called the Monkey Temple, its gold dome was re-gilded as part of a 2010 renovation.
