Swayambhunath Yoga Day Tour


Overview

Swoyambhu nath stupa ; Monkey tample..3Km west of valley 45 minute walking distance

 Located on a lovely little rock hill, Swoyambhunath Stupa is one of the most fascinating architectural jewels of the world. Swoyambhunath stupa is a World Heritage Site.Swoyambhunath is believed to have been established more than 2,500 years ago. An inscription dated 460 A.D. states that the construction was carried out by King Manadeva. By the thirteenth century Swoyambhunath had developed into an important Buddhist learning site.Kathmandu Valley is said to have started with the beginning of Swoyambhu. The largest image of the Sakyamuni Buddha in Nepal is in a monastery next to the Stupa. Behind the hilltop is a temple dedicated to Manjusri of Saraswati – the goddess of learning. Statues and shrines of Buddhist and Hindu deities dot the Stupa complex. The establishment of Swoyambhunath Stupa goes back to the legendary beginning of the Kathmandu Valley. The legend says that when the bodhisattva Manjushri drained the waters of the lake to reveal the Kathmandu valley, the lotus of the lake was transformed into the hillock and the blazing light became the Swoyambhu stupa.The cleft made by the sword immediately drained the entire lake water making the valley floor open for a close up view of the divine lotus light. The view is splendid at dusk as city lights flicker one by one, and even better when a full moon hangs in the sky.

This day Tour is included with Buddhist meditation with Monks and Lamas,we also visit to Red monastry
