I had the opportunity to visit several temples while in Nepal. This one had the energy of "gathering" and gave me a sense of family. I'm grateful that I took the time to visit it.

Entrance was through a narrow alley way into a largish sqyare dominated by the Stupa and some smaller temples around the edges.This was a good place for people watching as there were many people around the busy square.

Fascinating small replica of Svayambhunath, also known as Kathesimbu, or Svayambhu (simbu) in Kathmandu (kathe) - right in the middle of courtyard with local monastery where you can meditate. Stupas from 5th to 20th centuries here - but there are pitfalls to be aware of; lots of people want to be "guides" here. Some are knowledgeable. Most just want to take you to painting shops and collect a fee. Others will hit you up to buy powdered milk, which they then sell back to stores.

I have passed this square so many times the past few years without realizing its name, which is very typical in Kathmandu. It's a small square where many locals gather to sell produce and goods, but right in the heart of the square lies Dharmadhaatu Stupa.

I didn't know the name until a Google map identified it as such. It is not listed as such on Trip Advisor; however, the square is identified by its chowk name. You will see other similar stupas and shrines throughout the city, and its worth sampling for the local culture.

The stupa and square are typical of old Kathmandu in a number of ways. there are many such places that one comes across just wandering the alleys that you might not know the name of and that might not appear in guidebooks (though this does). They demonstrate the importance of religion to Kathmanduites in their daily lives and that the stupa, temples or monuments are simply part of everyday living.

It's a nice enough place for these reasons, it's vibrant and ordinary at the same time not to dismiss with faint praise though) but what it lacks for most of the day is the peace and quiet to contemplate that somewhere such as the nearby Kathesimbu has - unless the children are playing (which in itself is a wonderful sound).

I Always passed in front the stupa in this chowk while walking from Chhetrapati to places like Rani Pokhari or Ratna Park.
The stupa is called Dharmadhaatu and tough small is very beautiful and well preserved

If you walk from Thamel towards New road you will find a streetlife of its own. Most of the roads nowadays are walking zones so you can fully enjoy the narrow roads. First place you reach is a square with a small Stupa around the local vegetable market. After Tahiti chock the fabric shops start. You will find amazing brocat and silk just next to the Stupa in a little shop. Sunil is one of the last shopkeepers who really daels with brocat from Varanasi. If you continue the small path you will find on the right side another Stupa complex. Also funny the old dentist shops along the way. Its a joyful walsk of maximum 30 minutes until you reach New road or Durbar Square. Every step a picture point!

There is nothing much to see but yes a stupa in the middle. So many shops around and always crowded with people. In the evening, a small vegetable market. So you can see the local vegetables.

Went there to see the beautiful stupa. On seeing stupas, I find peace. Some statues of some other God's are there. In the evening, vegetable vendors sit outside the four walls of the stupa. Worth a visit !
