When Night Arrives at Swayambhunath...

The monkeys take it all back. I could not believe how much this place changes within an hour, with the arrival of darkness. The temple is overrun by visitors in broad daylight, and then somehow they all disappear and the monkeys take over again. A very special place to be at night. Swayambhunath, Kathmandu, Nepal.
