We will then continue to Boudhanath stupa, to the northwest of the city where we find the Boudhanath stupa – “Nepal's largest Buddhist shrine”. The 40m high Boudhanath stupa is surrounded by a ring of Tibetan buildings which include several important temples - or Gompas - one for each of the four main directions within Tibetan Buddhism. There is almost always some kind of ceremony in progress and we may see Tibetan pilgrims walking in a circular fashion around the stupa and turning the many prayer wheels as they pass - always in a clockwise direction.
