Bodhnath Stupa Kathmandu
Kathmandu

The Bodhnath Stupa is probably the most important Buddhist shrine in Nepal. Only the Svayambhunath Stupa has a comparable importance. It is located on the old trade and Magi road between Tibet and India. It is therefore, very much of Tibetan pilgrims visited it and less of Newari Buddhists. Around the stupa to arise more and more monasteries. The Cini Lama resides in one of them. After the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lama is he the third-highest Tibetan dignitaries. This emphasizes once again the importance of this Stupa for the Tibetan Buddhism.

More About Kathmandu

Home to Mt. Everest and a wide range of ethnic groups speaking almost 100 languages and dialects, Nepal is a study in diversity. Climate ranges from sub-tropic to arctic, offering an unparalleled variety of ecosystems – humid plains, tropical jungles, forested hills, frozen valleys, and of course the Himalayas. Hinduism is the major religion although Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha, was born in the south of the country and Buddhism has a strong tradition in Nepal as well.
