Kathesimbu Stupa - Square, Kathmandu: 8 reviews and 14 photos
Just south of the small square Thahiti Tole is at the right hand the entrance to a courtyard with the Kathesimbhu Stupa. This stupa from around 1650 is a copy of the great Swayambhunath complex on a hilltop 2 KM west of the centre at the other side of the Vishumati River.
It is said that, if a devotee not can make the ascent to the hill to the great complex, a circuit around this smaller replica is a good substitute.
Everyday we passed this stupa. It was a nice surprise, when we discovered it the first time, at the end of a small alley, hidden between the buildings.
