boudhnath

Boudhanath Stupa is thought to have been built around the 14th Century. It was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Tibetan merchants have offered prayer here for many centuries. Refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950’s and decided to live around Bhoudhanath.

Boudhanath Stupa is still very much worth a visit despite being badly damaged in the earthquake of 2015.The tower was severely cracked and therefore had to be demolished. All religious and historical artifacts were removed before rebuilding could commence, it is being rebuilt at present.  If you visit early morning and also late afternoon you can watch pilgrims, monks and lamas and the local people doing their kora.  There are shops and cafes and many monasteries in the surrounding area. A visit to one of the roof terrace cafes surrounding the Stupa allow for fabulous views of the Stupa and on a clear day you may be able to see Langtang Ri.
