Monkey Temple is one of Nepal’s very first alternative rock bands. Monkey Temple was one of the few bands to make it into the Nepali rock scene during a time when rock music was unheard of.The year was 1998, and the setting was St. Xavier’s School, Monkey Temple Band was formed by a group of friends who shared a common enthusiasm for rock music. There was no sophisticated gear or high-quality equipment back then. The group began with what they had since all they wanted was to make good music.
