Meditating on the pair of eyes on the stupa gave an insight in the importance of seeing through the eyes of compassion and wisdom, the number 1 under the eyes remind us the importance of unity.

Stunning place in every way! Lots of activity - great to just sit down and watch everything! Spent about 2-3 hours here but will definitely return for another visit before I leave.

Climb a lot of stairs, see a lot of monkeys, a temple, and many vendors. Don't try to have a snack while you're there, as the monkeys will think it is for them.

If you’re interested only in the main stupa, one hour is sufficient. This excludes the travel time to get to the place. There are also some other attractions shown on the map at the entrance but I didn’t have time to cover... More

I have not heard of any monastery stay for the Boudhanarth Temple but I am sure there are several forest monastery outside of Kathmandu. I hope you will find one and find your peaceful time of meditation there.

A place to respect the traditions, turn the prayer wheels and pray for your karma. Just do what the Tibetan do and your life might change. A very special place
