Swayambhunath is an ancient religious building at the top of a hill in the Kathmandu Valley, west of Kathmandu city, Nepal. Swayambhunath occupies a central position, and is one of the most sacred among Buddhist pilgrimage sites. For Tibetans and followers of Tibetan Buddhism, it is second only to Boudhanath. The Swayambhunath complex consists of a stupa and a variety of shrines and temples, the highest of which has Buddha's eyes and eyebrows painted on, which can be seen in the centre of the image. Prince Waldemar of Prussia (1817-1849), encouraged by Alexander von Humboldt, commenced a scientific expedition to India in September 1844, reaching Calcutta in January 1845 via Athens, Egypt, and Ceylon, and travelled on to Patna, Kathmandu, Benaras, Delhi, Naini Tal and into Tibet. While the Anglo-Sikh wars ranged about them, the expedition gathered a huge amount of specimens and data on the cultural, historical, social and political scenery of India, and Waldemar, a keen and talented artist, made hundreds and hundreds of fine sketches and watercolours, depicting landscapes, village life and monuments as well as Anglo-Sikh battles. These were later skilfully turned into lithographs and published as 'Zur Erinnerung an die Reise nach Indien 1844-46'.
