The Bouddhanath Stupa (UNESCO World Heritage Site), also know as Boudha, is the most liked sightseeing place in Kathmandu. It is situated 7 km to the east of downtown Kathmandu and is one of the most imposing landmarks in Kathmandu, visible as soon as you land at the Tribhuvan International Airport. It is home to many Tibetan refugees and is one of the largest stupas in the world; the 5th century Boudhanath stupa.
Surrounding the stupa is a pleasant courtyard that contains the Tamang Gompa amongst numerous traditional shops selling singing bowls, thankas, prayer wheels and much more. There are also quite a few cafes and guesthouses in the immediate area. And it is very famous and holy place especially for Buddhists People. It is one of the most popular world heritage site of Nepal. Throughout the day, you will see many monks and people ritually walking around the stupa. Do remember to walk clockwise around the stupa keeping the stupa to your right. Prayers wheels should also be spun clockwise. You can enter and walk on the white dome of the stupa.
Boudhanath survived the 2015 earthquake however extensive repairs were needed and carried out throughout 2016. On the 14th of November 2016 the repairs were completed and celebrated with the return of prayer flags around the stupa.
