Also known as the Temple of 1000 Buddhas.

Quote:
Mahabuddha Temple, also know as "temple of thousand buddhas" is a skikhar style buddhist temple. It is made of terracotta bricks with fine status and carvings. It was built by priest Mr. Abhaya Raj Shakya about 450 years back. It took three generations effort and 36 years time period (1564 A.D. to 1600 A.D.) to complete this temple. It was reconstructed in 1933 A.D. due to bad impact of the earthquake & again in 1999 A. D. as a maintenance by Mahabuddha temple preservation Organization...


Here are some pictures of this temple from Wonderlane on Flickr.

I've been here and it's a wonderful pilgrimage place, of many, in Kathmandu. Kirtu, is this your flickr page or do you know the person? Because I believe the statue that is labeled "Monkey King" is actually a statue of Acala!

Hi Adamantine! It's not my page and I don't know the person. I saw Lama Zopa reference the temple and I looked it up. Wonderlane actually have several Flickr sets, most Buddhist. You can email him/her here.

And here's yet another one - this is a video of a pilgrimage to Guru Rinpoche's cave at Yangleshe, followed by a visit to the Mahabuddha (Mahaboudha) and Golden Temples in Patan.

Dear Kirt,

I enjoyed watching your video clips very much....long time ago, I flew with Thai Inter Airways to Katmandu may be 4-5 times..just stayed at the airport during transit...but we, crews/passengers loved to watch through the plane window during the airplane approaching Katmandu Airport...those mountains looked so beautiful...oh we had so many hippie-passengers indeed those days!!
