prayer flags and prayer wheels - Swayambhunath, Kathmandu

Like the other stupas that I saw throughout Kathmandu, there were many prayer flags hanging on and around the stupa when I visited Swayambhunath (Monkey Temple). There were also prayer wheels surrounding the stupa, which a person can push to rotate as he/she walks around the stupa.

Some of the prayer flags were strung along the outside of the stupa's plaza on top of the hill, as well as along the walk up to the stupa... the view of the city was wonderful!
