Swayambunath

Located on a hilltop overlooking Kathmandu city, Swayambunath is one of Kathmandu’s two main stuppas.  It holds ancient Buddhist relics and is a place of worship, pilgrimage and of course tourists for Nepalis and foreigners, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.  These photographs are from a trip to Swayambunath that I took with the students on the program.
