Swayambunath is one the most sacred buddhist pilgrimage site. It is also known as the monkey temple as there are holy primates living in the temple. Swayambhunath consists of a stupa, a variety of shrines and temples. 365 steps lead directly to the main platform at the top of the temple. The stupa was completely renovated in may 2010, its first major renovation in 90 years and its 15th in the nearly 1500 years since its construction. Source : wiki

Dobar dan, popodne.
Dobar tekst o hramu sa opisom, lep pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepo pokazan deo hrama i trenutak sa posetiocima, lepe boje.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.

How great to see renovation on important structures like this, and its beauty shines through as even under the protection of the construction cover, it still appears as a beautiful structure. I like the little eyes at the near top too, it looks like somebody is peeping out!
All the best

an interesting angle showing the famous temple for a different pov., I liked these details, specially these windows painted in gold. it is a pity the image isn't so sharp.

Hi Gueguen, This Monkey Temple still has a lot to tell even though it is under the construction and it is partially covered by a piece of construction sheet. One can imagine how beautiful those parts under the cover of this sheet just by looking outside structure of this temple. Great POV with fine details. Thank for sharing

Uno de los templos mas famosos de nepal, magnifico POV que nos muestra su gran estupa y las doradas capillas, la gente nos da una idea de su gran tamaño.
Muy buen manejo de la luz y buena nitidez.
Que tenga un buen día.
Todo lo mejor.

Looks like this enormous stupa is getting a face-lift since I was last there in 2002! The scaffolding wasn't there when I visitted. Good framing and composition and the people add scale and animate the scene. The watching eyes immediately attract attention. Great weekend to you!

Pitty it was under renovations, Miguel, but looking carefully on details we can appreciate it's beauty.
Tourists on photo added life to the scene.
Have a nice holidays weekend,
