Boudhanath in Nepal

The Stupa is on the ancient trade route from Tibet which enters the Kathmandu Valley. It then turns directly south, heading over the Bagmati river to Patan. Tibetan merchants have rested and offered prayers here for many centuries. When refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many decided to live around Bouddhanath. The Stupa is said to entomb the remains of Kassapa Buddha.
