Swayumpahya temple: Home of the monkeys

In June of 2017, I spent three weeks in Kathmandu. While I was there, I ventured out to the edge of the city to explore Swayumpahya temple. A sacred space shared by Hindus, Buddhist and monkeys. It was interesting to watch the monkeys socialize and go about their day. While the space displays Nepal's rich cultural heritage, my visit also reminded me that we are not the only social beings on this planet.
