The Monkey Temple is also known as the Swayambhunath, and it’s among the oldest religious sites in Nepal. It is located on the top of a hill surrounded by “sublime trees,” and there are monkeys that live in the northwest parts of the temple. The dome at the base of the temple represents the world and the eyes on the four sides of the main stupa represent wisdom and compassion.
