Boudhanath (Stupa), Kathmandu

Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 4,400+ reviews on the web
One of the largest and most important structures of its kind in the country, Boudhanath (Stupa) holds a spot on the World Heritage List and serves as an icon of the city. Pay a visit to this holy site and you'll find it an epicenter of Tibetan Buddhism in the region, as the complex features a number of monasteries around it. Marvel at the stupa's massive base, topped with a sizable dome and a towering manadala, the golden triangular spire at the top. You can also admire the colorful statues around the dome and the tower's mysterious painted-on eyes. Rumor has it that circling the stupa can help to free you from your sins. The devastating earthquake in April of 2015 severely damaged the structure, causing the removal of the entire top portion and calling for a massive reconstruction project.

  • The entrance of the site for foreigners costs 250 rupees in October 2016. A large scaffold was present around the cap of the stupa which is already fixed, but being finished. Let carry you by the crowd of pilgrims to infinity around the stupa. Many coffee with roof terraces will allow you to enjoy the show more above. If you have a drone leave him at home, use strictly prohibited!

  • its the best thing that makes a nepali proud bcause lord buddha was born in Nepal
  • What other do you want for Buddha? Included in world heritage list. It's the best along with swaymbunath.
  • Boudhanath is one of the famous tourist destination. The huge boudha stupa is the marvel of Buddhist art and culture. It reflects the Nepalese and Tibetian culture. There are other attraction in this place such as good hotels, sculptures for sale and other Buddhist related items.
  • This place helps you calm your mind. I like the om mane pad me hu mantra, that is played around the stupa.
  • Boudha Nath is famous Buddhist temple and also linked with Hinduism. Its located at eastern side of Kathmandu. Its surrounded by nice café where you can relax and enjoy the view.
