Boudhnath stupa is the largest in Nepal. Its massive white dome looms over concentric ascending terraces. There are 108 images of the Buddha set around the base of the stupa. Tibetan Buddhist monasteries are scattered all around and a large Tibetan community resides in the area, who make their daily "kora" circling the stupa, twirling prayer wheels as they pass. UNESCO has declared Bouddhanath a World Heritage Site.
