The incredibly moving and fascinatingly large famous stupa of Kathmandu. It is one of the most important sights in the city and in all of Nepal.

The Stupa is the most famous world heritage site in Nepal, and is an extremely important site for Buddhists. Listen in on ceremonies and prayers around the temple, and there us a magnificent view to enjoy too. Buy some bird feed to watch the flocks dance around you.

This stupa is one of the holiest sites in Kathmandu. As a significant icon of the city, Boudhanath towers at around 360 feet tall. Surrounded by prayer flags and burning incense, the stupa has an octagonal base covered in over 100 images of Buddhist deities.

Although Boudhanath was badly damaged in the 2015 earthquake, it has since been restored. The massive stupa is a fascinating place to visit and the surrounding area is a hive of activity. Novice Buddhist monks scurry around between scripture readings, shops sell spiritual paraphernalia and restaurants serve vegetarian food. Chanting can be heard coming from the temples and incense wafts through the air - it's a veritable feast of spirituality.

It's the biggest Buddhist Pagoda in Katmandu that are being visited by the Tibetan Buddhists and monks for prayer. A better view of the temple can be captured from one of the rooftop restaurants around it.
