The temple complex is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and is home to hundreds of monkeys that worshipers believe are sacred.
A legend says that the sacred monkeys were formed from the head lice of the Mañjuśrī Bodhisattva, the embodiment of wisdom in Buddhism. According to tradition, Mañjuśrī Bodhisattva raised the hill upon which Swayambhunath stands.
Graham recently said on Instagram that the temple complex was “one of my favorite places I’ve ever been, and probably the most fascinating.”
So journey to this fascinating temple complex with its sacred monkeys.
