A tourist offering prayer to the Swayambhunath Temple ( monkey temple ) Kathmandu Nepal Located in a lovely little hill rock Swayambhunath Stupa middle of city is one of the most fascinating architectural jewels of the world. This great Stoup is said to have been built around 250 BC Generally a holy memorial site Stoup represents a typical Buddhist architecture. The Stupa of Swoyambhunath stands on a typically stylized lotus mandala base-a long time ago believed to have originated from a legendary lake of Kathmandu Valley. As the ancient legend goes Kathmandu Valley was a lake a long time ago. Right in the centre of this lake was a full blown lotus with the divine light a top. When Maha Manjushri a saint from China heard about this he came rushing all the way from China to the Valley. He cut through the southern wall hill of the valley with his divine sword. The cleft made by the sword immediately drained the entire lake water making the valley floor open for a close up view of the divine lotus light. This holy site in fact is the massive stupa complex ever built in Nepal. Hundreds of votive shrines and other historical monuments built in and around this stupa speak a lot about the significance and antiquity of this famed stupa.

Overland from London to Kathmandu - 1972-1973 [08:54]
This was made from the complete set 225 of color slides taken on my first solo trip abroad at age 19. With about $1200 in my pocket and my only guide, a page from the Original Whole Earth Catalog I had gotten for Christmas the year before, I flew on Pan Am to London and hitchhiked through Belgium, Germany, Austria, and Italy. I then took a ship to Greece, flew to Turkey and traveled overland through Iran, Afghanistan, through the Khyber Pass to Pakistan and India and finally arrived in Nepal where I left on a 3 week trek to the Base Camp of Everest. A fascinating adventure!
