I have wanted to visit the Stupa for many years and was fortunate enough to be taken by some local friends tonight. They delayed my visit so i got to experience it in the darkness and I am so glad they did.

It was an amazing experience even though I only managed one circuit, visit inside the wall then watched, listened and ate at the golden eyes overlooking the Stupa as the rain fell. The lights reflecting off the wet structure made the experience even better.

A good day to be alive on planet earth :)

Pigeons, dogs and cows are welcome guests to the shrine, and often given blessings from visitors to the shrine. A beautiful place to have a guide teach you about Buddhism.

simply magnificent, a must see attraction. Easy to get to in the center of Kathmandu. Lots of monks and nuns, colorful shops and the stupa was the largest I have ever seen or walked on top of

I could spend days sitting here watching the world go by. It's such a contradiction of calm and busy. Plenty of places to purchase food and drink, and full of gift shops selling good quality goods.

Go ahead, walk around the temple with hundreds of men, women, children, monks and travelers, while chanting Buddhist preyers and spinning the cylinders filled with holy scrolls. This was great to live the moments and experience life in Kathmandu!
