Bouddhanath is one of the largest unique structure's stupas in the world. As of 1979, Boudha Stupa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Along with Swayambhu,it is one of the most popular tourist sites in the Kathmandu area. The influx of large populations of refugees from Tibet has seen the construction of over 50 gompas (Tibetan convent) around Boudha. Tibetan merchants have rested and offered prayers here for many centuries. When refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many decided to live around Boudhanath. Boudhanath Stupa was built during the 5th century AD, by an an old poultry woman who asked the king for land to construct a shrine to the Buddha. It is especially spectacular at night when adorned with butter lamps. Remember to walk around the stupa in a clockwise direction and also to spin the prayer wheels clockwise. During the day hours pilgrims can be seen circumambulating the structure chanting mantras. There is a small entry fee (rps 150) to enter the stupa area. This can be waived for guests of hotels located at the other side of the stupa.
