The Monkey Temple

On our second day in Kathmandu, we hiked up the the top of a mountain passing monkeys all along the way, and finally reached the Buddhist temple of Swayambunath. The view and architecture were beautiful, but my favorite part were the prayer flags.

Each color of flag represents one of the elements as well as having a prayer printed on it. When they blow in the wind the prayers are carried into the air and spread to the gods and over the people.
