A journey up to the Buddhist temple and Unesco World Heritage Site of Swayambhunath is one of the definitive experiences of Kathmandu. Mobbed by monkeys and soaring above the city on a lofty hilltop, the ‘Monkey Temple’ is a fascinating, chaotic jumble of Buddhist and Hindu iconography.

Swayambhunath Stupa   (Monkey Temple), Kathmandu, Nepal

The compound is centred on a gleaming white stupa, topped by a gilded spire painted with the eyes of the Buddha. Depictions of these eyes appear all over the Kathmandu Valley.

 

Coming to Swayambhunath is an intoxicating experience, with ancient carvings jammed into every spare inch of space and the smell of incense and butter lamps hanging heavy in the air. The mystical atmosphere is heightened in the morning and evening by local devotees who make a ritual circumnavigation of the stupa, spinning the prayer wheels set into its base. It is a great place to watch the sun set over Kathmandu.

 

According to legend, the Kathmandu Valley was once a lake – geological evidence supports this – and the hill now topped by Swayambhunath rose spontaneously from the waters, hence the name swayambhu, meaning ‘self-arisen’.

 

The emperor Ashoka allegedly visited 2000 years ago, but the earliest confirmed activity here was in AD 460. During the 14th century, Mughal invaders from Bengal broke open the stupa in the search for gold, but the stupa was restored and expanded over the following centuries.

Eastern  Stairway

Swayambhunath Stupa   (Monkey Temple), Kathmandu, Nepal


There are two ways to approach Swayambhunath temple, but by far the most atmospheric is the stone pilgrim stairway that climbs the eastern end of the hill. Constructed by King Pratap Malla in the 17th century, this steep stone staircase is mobbed by troops of rhesus macaques, who have made an artform of sliding down the steep handrails. A word of advice: keep foodstuffs out of sight of these simian hoodlums!

 


          From a collection of brightly painted Buddha statues at the bottom of the hill, the steps climb past a series of chaitya and bas-reliefs, including a stone showing the birth of the Buddha, with his mother Maya Devi grasping a tree branch. You can often see Tibetan astrologers reading fortunes here. At the top, the steps are lined with pairs of Garudas, lions, elephants, horses and peacocks, the ‘vehicles’ of the Dhyani Buddhas. Near the end of the climb is the ticket office (there’s another one at the western entrance, near the tourist bus park). When you reach the top, remember to walk around the stupa in a clockwise direction.

  


Great Thunderbolt

Great Thunderbolt
 

          At the top of the eastern stairway is an enormous, brass-plated dorje (thunderbolt), one of the core symbols of Tibetan Buddhism. Known as the vajra in Sanskrit, the thunderbolt is a symbol of the power of enlightenment, which destroys ignorance, but is itself indestructible. In rituals the dorje is used to indicate male power, while female power is represented by a ceremonial bell.


          Around the pedestal supporting the symbol are the animals of the Tibetan calendar; flanking the plinth are the Anantapura and Pratapura temples, two slender, Indian-style shikhara temples built by King Pratap Malla in the 17th century. Nearby is a viewpoint and a raised area with telescopes for hire.

 

Swayambhunath Stupa   (Monkey Temple), Kathmandu, Nepal

Swayambhunath Stupa
The Swayambhunath stupa is one of the crowning glories of Kathmandu Valley architecture. This perfectly proportioned monument rises through a whitewashed dome to a gilded spire, from where four faces of the Buddha stare out across the valley in the cardinal directions. The noselike squiggle below the piercing eyes is actually the Nepali number ek (one), signifying unity, and above is a third eye signifying the all-seeing insight of the Buddha.

Swayambhunath Stupa   (Monkey Temple), Kathmandu, Nepal  


          The entire structure of the stupa is symbolic – the white dome represents the earth, while the 13-tiered, beehivelike structure at the top symbolises the 13 stages that humans must pass through to achieve nirvana.


          The base of the central stupa is ringed by prayer wheels embossed with the sacred mantra om mani padme hum (‘hail to the jewel in the lotus’). Pilgrims circuiting the stupa spin each one as they pass by. Fluttering above the stupa are thousands of prayer flags, with similar mantras, which are said to be carried to heaven by the winds. Set in ornate plinths around the base of the stupa are statues representing the Dhyani Buddhas – Vairocana, Ratnasambhava, Amitabha, Amocha Siddhi (Amoghasiddhi) and Aksobhya – and their shakti (consorts). These deities represent the five qualities of Buddhist wisdom.

Stupa Platform
The great stupa is surrounded on all sides by a veritable sculpture garden of religious monuments. At the rear of the stupa, next to a small, poorly lit museum of Buddhist statuary, is the Kagyud-school Dongak Chöling gompa , set above a brick path . Take your shoes off to view the murals inside.


North of the pilgrim shelter is the golden pagoda-style Hariti (Ajima) Temple , with a beautiful image of Hariti, the goddess of smallpox. This Hindu goddess, who is also responsible for fertility, illustrates the seamless interweaving of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs in Nepal.


Mounted on pillars near the Hariti Temple are figures of Tara making the gesture of charity, with an upturned palm. In fact, there are two Taras – Green Tara and White Tara – said to symbolise the Chinese and Nepali wives of King Songtsen Gampo, the first royal patron of Buddhism in Tibet. The Taras are also female consorts to two of the Dhyani Buddhas.


Nearby, bronze images of the river goddesses Jamuna and Ganga guard an eternal flame in a cage. Northwest of these statues is a garden of ancient chaityas, and at the back of this group is a slick black statue of Dipankara, carved in the 7th century. Also known as the ‘Buddha of Light’, Dipankara is one of the ‘past Buddhas’ who achieved enlightenment before the time of Siddhartha Gautama, the historical Buddha. Also note the black chaityas set atop a yoni – a clear demonstration of the mingling of Hindu and Buddhist symbology.

a 6m-high figure of Sakyamuni, the historical Buddha  


Back at the northeast corner of the complex is the Shree Karmaraja Mahavihar , a Buddhist temple enshrining a 6m-high figure of Sakyamuni, the historical Buddha. A prayer service takes place every day at around 4pm, accompanied by a cacophony of crashing cymbals, honking horns and the rumbling chanting of Sutras (Buddhist texts).


Symbols of the five elements – earth, air, water, fire and ether – can be found around the hilltop. Behind the shikhara-style Anantapura temple are shrines dedicated to Vasupura , the earth symbol, and Vayupura , the air symbol. Nagpura , the symbol for water, is a stone set in a muddy pool just north of the stupa, while Agnipura , the symbol for fire, is the red-faced god on a polished boulder on the northwestern side of the platform. Shantipura, the symbol for the sky, is north of the platform, in front of the Shantipura building.

Western Stupa
If you follow either path leading west from the main stupa, you will reach a smaller stupa near the car park for tourist buses. Just behind is a gompa surrounded by rest houses for pilgrims and an important shrine to Saraswati, the goddess of learning. At exam time, many scholars come here to improve their chances, and school children fill the place during Basanta Panchami, the Festival of Knowledge.

Getting there & away
You can approach Swayambhunath by taxi (Rs 80), by bicycle or as part of an easy stroll from Kathmandu. Taxis can drop you at the bottom of the eastern stairway or at the car park atop the western side. The latter is closer to the stupa but the steep eastern pilgrim stairway offers the more interesting approach. Safa tempo No 20 (Rs 7) shuttles between Swayambhunath's eastern stairway and Kathmandu's Sundhara district (near the main post office).

At first glance it appears to be impossible to reach the
dizzy heights of physical exercise search on Google. Achievable put any phrase
in search engine and you can bet that a million web pages come up.

So the chances of climbing up the rankings to the top does seem to be very low.



In order to get ranked higher in Google you ought find
out how much competition a person. Say for instance your site is about
Soccer Tips locations has videos with soccer tricks, tips and how strengthen your title.
You will can be based on the actual search term.



I recommend this book for anyone, whether experience
that an individual serious worries or not; the tips within can assist
anyone to overcome those shadowy demons that may actually be wrecking your behind the scenes.



However, Google also analyzes where the "votes" came from.
If your site gets links from high-quality, authority sites with high PR, then your site benefits more from
links from those high PR site sites than from links from non-authority or low PR online.


There is an additional effective solution to bring popularity for your own site and in which done through link share.
Link exchange can result within a good page rank for web site and can improve the google search ranking.


Now it is an available domain name that is sort of short yet reflects your main topic word that's.
When you have found a few go the firm is accredited there are any will be about to
expire that you're able to grab and look that list. If you see anything thats close coming from what you wanted or better, check its page rise.


You then start to hold back anxiously with your site to get listed, and look for your listing and
google engines repeatedly, without any success. A variety of you in order to get agitated, and start submitting to your search engines again, and again.

Keep your articles short. You'll be able to generate more
attention online prone to can keep articles speedy.
As you know, online users have restricted attention span and they would be happy if purchase offer them the involving information they want without wasting their a period of time.
It would also help if utilized make visitors scannable simply
put readers can easily find the knowledge that they
truly need and skip those ones that have been of little interest for
them.
