Bodhnath Stupa, Kathmandu: 37 reviews and 91 photos


Bodhnath, one of the two biggest buddist stupa in the world is located 6Km far away from Kathmandu center, and it is the center of the religion for the population coming from Tibet that is actually living in Nepal.
Bodhanath is a place (and it doesn?t exist a lot of place like this) where the tibetean culture is so self evident and ?free?.
When you take the main entrance, on the left and on the righ side you will see a lot of small shops that are selling every kind of religion stuff (too expensive here!!, search 4 it in Thamel!) and a lot of smaller monasteries.
The tibetean culture is so impressive!
Here , you can also walk trough the Gompa and get to the Top, but keep in mid to follow the right directions (anyway, there are a lof of signals and everyone there will assit you in the entrance).
The first immage that will impress you is the pray section, so huge and coloured.
The religious music, the tibetean population, the quietness, the pray section makes this place unbelievable!
Here you will meet also some european/american buddist students.

Bodhanath is a place where you will spend at lest three hours. Is not so huge place, but the time will pass you by.
