"Crafts shops." Swayambhunath Things to Do Tip by euzkadi

Swayambhunath Things to Do: 17 reviews and 57 photos


Behind the main stupa there´s an area with some excellent crafts shops with masks, Tibetan paintings and wood carvings- I´m not shure if the prices were better than in Thamel ( there were less tourists) but for me it was a good place to buy handicrafts. There are also a couple of small cafes to relax and enjoy the lively atmosphere of the temple.
