The Boudhanath Stupa is one of the religious marvels of Kathmandu. It is truly representative of Buddhist architecture. It is a must see!

A great place to wander with shops, cafes, restaurants and a temple to view as well as the stupa. Remember to walk around it clockwise and give the prey wheels a turn with your right hand.
