Boudhanath is one of the largest stupas in the world and is listed as UNESCO World Heritage site of Nepal. With whitewashed dome exterior, spire atop and eyes painted of Buddha, this landmark is a magnificent beauty to eyes.
Its early history dates back to around the fifth century. A number of pilgrims and resident devotees gather around the stupa to perform the daily ritual—Kora. This ritual involves circumnavigating the stupa, praying and wishing with a pure heart so that the devotee can have good luck and attain salvation. After the 2015 earthquake, this stupa also underwent minor damages but later on restored well.
