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.

Another record breaking turnout for Event 31: A No Limit Hold'em match.
Wait for your chance into the future and then hit on the bull's
eye in bluffing. "Start spreading the news" of a spitting image
of America's most populous city in Paradise, Nevada .

Apparently, any virtual live roulette: http://Archivo.unionpuebla.mx/external?url=http://www.kingsandqueensonline.com/918kiss-most-popular-online-slot-game is a random number generator.
In short the players get free money as bonus at such casino houses.
Thus, this game is very and also economical for the members.

First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.

I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10
to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?

Thanks!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
