2013 Boudhanath Stupa, one of the largest in the world, is sacred to Tibetan Buddhists

After a morning flight from Delhi to Kathmandu where we marveled at the first sight of the Himalaya Mountains, our group toured Patan’s Durban Square.  This World Heritage site features a combinations of palace buildings, artistic courtyards, and pagoda-style temples representative of Nepal’s religious and social life.  We stayed in Kathmandu city and explored Swoyambhuanth Stupa, the famous monkey temple boasting infamous painted eyes watching all who ascend the steps.  We continued on to the 17th-century Durbar complex and visited Hanuman Dhoka where we saw Kumari, the Living Goddess.  We experienced Pashupatinath Temple situated on the banks of the River Baghmati, and the most important Hindu temple in Nepal; and we saw Boudhanath, one of the largest stupas in the world and a sacred place to Buddhist pilgrims from Tibet.  A visit to Nepal is a life-changing experience.
