It is also know as Hanuman Dhoka Durbar Square, derived from the statue of Hanuman at the entrance of ancient royal palace or Basantapur Durbar Square. 

Then, head towards Swayambhunath. It is also know as the "Monkey Temple", situated on a small hillock on the west of Kathmandu city. It is a sacred place for Buddhist pilgrimages from all over the world. Large eyes painted on the four sides of the main stupa represents wisdom and compassion, and a dome at the base of Sutpa represents the entire world.
