This was one of my favourite places I visited in the city. The main stupa is spectacular, bright white, adorned with prayer flags and surrounded by prayer wheels. You can climb up onto the stupa which gives an alternative perspective on the area. It's a great spot for people watching and the stupa is ringed by plenty of shops, cafes... More

I had watched a documentary about this place a few years before I actually came here and it lived up to my expectations. Walking around the stupa, running my hands along the prayer wheels that millions of others have done, listening to the chants of so many - I felt a peace and calm come over me. I've only felt...

My favorite place to visit in Kathmandu. Despite all of the duplicative shops, Boudha stupa is a great place to go for some serenity, introspection, and people-watching. There are also some very good restaurants inside the "square", many catering to Westerners, and some good coffee joints as well...most offering free wifi, if that's what you're looking for.

Early morning and dusk are the best times to be here, when an otherworldly cacophony of ritual music drifts from the houses and monasteries that ring the stupa, and monks, locals and devout pilgrims all perform kora together, strolling, shuffling and prostrating their way around the dome. At other times, the souvenir shops and cafés in the tall houses that... More

There isn't a whole lot to say about this place. It's like one of those places that you should visit while in Kathmandu, but unless you are a devout Buddhist, it won't require a second visit. The last time I was there (yes, I have been many times but only to show other people) they had some sort of festival... More
