The Swayambhunath Temple (Monkey Temple)

 

 

 

Swayambhunath Stupa   (Monkey Temple), Kathmandu, Nepal 

 


KATHMANDU:  The 7.8-magnitude Nepal earthquake has left some of Kathmandu’s most well-known heritage sites in ruins. Among them, the 150-year-old Swayambhunath temple complex in the Kathmandu Valley. Comprising temples, shrines and the iconic stupa which bears the painted-on eyes of the Buddha, Swayambhunath is not only a revered location for locals but also one of the most-visited tourist destinations in the capital.

 

 


 

Despite the heartbreaking sight, a determined effort was underway to salvage items – both precious and ordinary – from damaged structures and half-collapsed dwellings. Volunteers helped clear bits and chunks of rubble, while young monks busied themselves by retrieving items from Swayambhunath’s monastery for safekeeping.

  


The long-term impact of the devastation at Swayambhunath is hard to tell for now. Tourism is an important revenue generator for Nepal – particularly for Kathmandu’s economy. But with some temples within the complex rendered irreparable, and some requiring intensive restoration, will tourists stay away from a ‘made-over’ heritage site in years to come?

The temple complex was a hive of people, both local and foreign, as they busied themselves to help monks with the clean-up efforts. For some, the sight of religious items left destroyed by the earthquake was just too much to bear.

          Swayambhunath: This is one of the world's most glorious Buddhist Chaityas. It is said to be 2,000 years old. Painted on the four sides of the spire’s base are the  all-seeing eyes of Lord Buddha. It is 3km west of  Kathmandu city and is situated on a hillock about 77m above the level of the Kathmandu Valley and hence  commands an excellent view of the Valley. This Stupa  is the oldest of its kind in Nepal. It was listed in the  UNESCO World Heritage Monument List in 1979.

I want to express my appreciation to this writer just for rescuing
me from this type of setting. Right after exploring throughout the the web and
meeting opinions which were not pleasant, I thought my entire life was well over.
Living minus the strategies to the difficulties you have fixed all through this review is a serious case, and
the kind which may have adversely affected my career if I had not noticed your
web page. Your good knowledge and kindness in maneuvering
all the pieces was crucial. I'm not sure what I would have
done if I had not encountered such a solution like this.
I'm able to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks
so much for this specialized and effective help. I will not hesitate to suggest your web sites to
any individual who ought to have care on this topic.

I leave a response each time I especially enjoy a post on a website or I have something
to valuable to contribute to the conversation. Usually it is triggered by the
fire communicated in the article I looked at. And on this article Buddhist Monastery and Meditation Center in Thailand.
I was actually excited enough to drop a commenta response ;
-) I do have a couple of questions for you
if it's okay. Is it only me or does it appear like some of these
comments look as if they are left by brain dead
people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I would like to follow you.
Would you make a list all of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page
or linkedin profile?
