Kathmandu, Nepal – Linnea Corn – Bodhnath Stupa
September 2011 - Linnea Corn visiting the Bodhnath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal. The site is dominated by a large whitewashed stupa with the all seeing eyes of Buddha on each side. Boudhanath is home to around 16000 Tibetan refugees. There are several beautiful Tibetan monasteries around the stupa and nearby. As dusk approached hundreds of Tibetans in traditional Tibetan cloths began their clockwise stroll around the stupa spinning the prayer wheels as they passed. There were several rooftop cafes and restaurants affording fantastic views of the shrine and surrounding countryside. A really beautiful and peaceful place, well worth a visit. Land a coin on the fountain for good luck!
