Monkey at Swayambhunath Stupa

At the rate I’m going with flashbacks, I’ll be stuck in Nepal forever, but truth be told, the little Himalayan country holds a special place in my heart.

Here are the posts I wrote after visits to 4 of the 7 World Heritage sites in the Kathmandu Valley:

Kathmandu’s Durbar Square (cool architecture)

Touring Swayambhunath Stupa (aka the Monkey Temple, plenty of prayer flags)

Patan’s Durbar Square Sans Camera

Hinduism’s Holy Pashupatinath Temple (Kama Sutra carving, public cremations, hermits)

Next week’s flashback will be dedicated to a 5th World Heritage site, and one of my favorite places in the entire world.
