Here is your chance to see as many prayer wheels as possible and turn them, including a super large one at one of the shops. There are lots of shops, as the stupa is the donut hole to the donut of stores and cafes.

We saved our visit for our last night in Kathmandu and what a way to end our trip. Just a magical spiritual place. And we witnessed a full moon the night we visited. Definitely a must see in Kathmandu

The 400 Rs admission is definitely worth it. The sheer size of the Stupa is amazing and requires thirty minutes to an hour of your day. It's surrounded by dozens of shops and restaurants

Excellently rebuilt after the 2015 earthquake. The place has an ethereal quality, (despite us as crowds of trippers ). Not only worth doing a circuit of the stupa, but also visiting the Peace Garden. I think that next time I'm in Kathmandu I'll try to...More
