Beautiful Buddhist Stupa. Lovely to go at dusk as all the local buddhists walk around the stupa and the smell of juniper is in the air.
This place is an awesome sight for its architecture and peacefulness. The monks going around the stupa, the market inside the stupa and the rush without much notice is awesome. It is a place to be visited at least once in lifetime
Kathmandu can be rather daunting for tourists. Most stay in Thamel and continually are besieged (politely) by hawkers while being honked at by rickshaw drivers, taxis, and motorcycles... all while viewing endless rows of souvenir shops with countless trinkets and goods.

Wanna feel cool ? Be there in stupa and enjoy . Best place in kathmandu valley . Buddhist monks are very kind and appreciable there . Its an easy destination too.
