"A City with More Temples than Population" Kathmandu by illa

Kathmandu Travel Guide: 960 reviews and 2,769 photos

I like how "Kath-man-du" sounds in my mouth when I pronounce it...

Up on Swayambhunath Temple (Monkey Temple), you can have an overlook of the whole city, like the eagle in the air.

Temples on the street.
