Kathesimbu Stupa, Kathmandu

Kathesimbu Stupa is situated in the Naghal district of Kathmandu. It was built for those who could not make the journey to visit Swayambhu, as it is located on a high hill. This reproduction of Swayambhu is practically hidden in the middle of old Kathmandu and this fact makes it extremely interesting.
