Kathmandu Photography – Boudhanath


The Buddhist stupa of Boudhanath is one of the largest in the world.  It is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site,  and it is one of the most popular tourist sites in the Kathmandu area.  Everytime I’m in Kathmandu it’s worth a stop not only for the stupa itself, but for the temples, buildings, and people surrounding it.  Monks, tourists, and locals intermingle as the holy Buddha eyes peer down upon you.
