This is definately a must see. Swayambhunath is also called the momkey temple and sits on a hill which can be seen for miles around. Be ready for a slow walk to the temple itself though as there's a step for each day of the year, and they're in a pretty bad state some of them. That said, once at the top, it's amazing. Small temples, shops and other things tio see are here, including a temple that has a resident Buddhist filling his butter lamps, amazing to see. It's also great to see the school kids as they visit the temple and can be seen sitting and eating their lunches, all very cute. If you can get away from the larger crowds it's also a very spiritual place and a great place to chill out and even meditate if you're into that. As I say, this is a must say.
