The largest Stupa in Nepal (Boudhanath Stupa), this Stupa is built upon concentric ascending terraces resembling the pattern of a Mandala. All around the base of this structure is a continuous ring of 108 images of the Buddha and 147 insets containing prayer wheels. The area is surrounded by scores of colorful shops, food joints, and art galleries selling local handicrafts.
