How simply beautiful. The areas are all kept beautifully and traditionally. Worth the time to see, and experience the culture through the small sculptures and carvings.

Visited the Shri Karma Raja Mahavihara ,located in the Swayambunath complex on 1 January 2015.
Located on the rght side of the main stairway,northern side of the main stupa
Its not a temple , as stated in the previous review here , its a Buddhist monastery.
This Vihara is the main seat of H.H. the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje in Nepal, directed by the abbot Sabchu Rinpoche.
The current monastery has been continuously improved since its establishment, with the support of many Buddhist donors. In the early 1970s, the 16th Karmapa stayed here for several months conducting special empowerments, teaching, and giving audience to hundreds of disciples.
At present, about sixty monks are accommodated in the monastery.
We managed to see the inside , the main altar , and the monk prayers room ,amazing decorations inside out.
Worth a visit ,if you are in Swayambunath area.
