BHAGAWAN PASUPATHINATH OF NEPAL
The Seat of Chaturmukha Siva

SWAYAMBHUNATH STUPA

Now comes Swayambhunath Mandir and it is one of the premier shrines of Katmandu. It is situated on a hill called Swayambhunath stupa. It is a grand temple maintained with great care and is attracting Buddhists and Hindus alike. Its glory is heralded, as it were, by a lofty gilded tower visible for miles around. It has a fascinating legend and is connected with Manusuri, a famous Bodhisattva, who came here from China. 

When he visited Nepal first, he was immensely pleased with the scenic grandeur of the hill, particularly that of the great lake of the valley the abode of Karkotaka - the king of snakes. He roamed round it with immense delight. Elated highly, he decided to enhance its glory. Accordingly, he put his two wives one on each peak and himself standing between the two cut the connecting ridge with his mighty sword. The opening when formed, allowed the lake water drain out soon in the form of river which is called the Vangamati or Bhagmatri river.
