Boudhanath

Address: Buddha Stupa, बौद्धनाथ सडक, काठमाडौँ 44600, Nepal

Hinduism is apparently the main religion of Nepal, and of course of Kathmandu. In Kathmandu, however, there is a huge stupa named Boudhanath. Boudhanath is Nepal’s largest stupa and the world’s biggest spherical stupa. It has been the centre of lives for Tibetan diasporas and Buddhists.


Boudhanath is a white dome topped with a gold pyramid, to which strings of prayer flags are connected. It makes you feel like you were in Lhasa. Many Tibetan diasporas have settled in Boudhanath’s surrounding areas, and more than 50 gompas have been erected as a result for their convenience.
