Boudhanath

Recommendation by Lemi

Under the watchful gaze of Buddha painted onto a golden spire, a procession of worshipers circle the base of Boudhanath Stupa. Join the crowd as they circumambulate (a devoted act of moving around a sacred object) and spin prayer wheels. This Buddhist stupa, one of the largest in the world, is right in the thick of town and remains unperturbed by the roaring commotion of the city. In the brief pockets of silence, you’ll catch the faint sound of Tibetan monks chanting mantras and the smell of incense wafting from over 50 nearby gompas (Tibetan monasteries).
