Trip Planner: Asia / Nepal / Central Region / Bagmati Zone / Kathmandu Valley / Kathmandu / Swayambhunath Temple
Watching over the capital from its hilltop vantage point, Swayambhunath Temple stands proudly as one of the nation's most popular tourist and religious sites. Featuring a white dome topped with an iconic golden spire, the World Heritage-listed temple likely dates back to before the 5th century, when it was already a vital pilgrimage destination. The structure endured the devastation of the 2015 earthquake, its prayer flags continuing to flutter in the breeze. Step inside to see a fusion of Hindu and Buddhist iconography, or try spinning the prayer wheels yourself.
