Boudhanath Stupa

Boudhanath Stupa is considered to be one of the oldest and biggest Buddhist monuments in Nepal. The impressive structure stands at a height of 36 meters. In 1979, it became an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Great Stupa of Boudhanath is the focal point of the district. There are at least 29 Tibetan Gompas (Monasteries & Nunneries) around Boudhanath. Situated on a three level Mandala style platform, the Stupa is visited by millions of devotees. An interesting legend surrounds this enthralling structure.
