„Circumambulating the Stupa Boudha“

from the gallery of serenityphotography

Boudha, or Boudhanath, is situated in the Kathmandu Valley, around ten kilometres from the capital. It is one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Nepal. Boudha is on the ancient trade route from Tibet, and many Tibetan exiles have settled here. The stupa at Boudha is the largest in Nepal. Buddhists believe that circumambulating - or walking around in a clockwise direction - a stupa creates merit.
