Boudhanath, The Eye of Kathmandu

The amazing Boudhanath

The eyes are located around the four sides
This ancient stupa is considered one of the largest stupa in the world and even make it into the UNESCO World Heritage. This stupa is located at the heart of Kathmandu and surrounded by tourist buildings. According to our guide, this stupa is influenced by the Tibetan culture. Around this area, we can find a lot of Tibetans making Kathmandu as their home with mostly setting up restaurant serving Tibetan and Chinese food. We even had Chinese food in one of the restaurant. Most locals and tourists will usually go around the stupa three times for luck and blessing.
