Reviews about Boudhanath Stupa

Known as the largest round Buddha Pagoda in the world, it is a landmark building in Nepal and also a United Nations cultural heritage. This is the holy place of Tibetan Buddhism. We can see that the Bodahar Buddha Pagoda in front of us has a huge white dome with extraordinary momentum, which gives us a feeling of generosity. There is a square tower on the grand white bowl with huge Nepalese God eyes painted on all sides. Perhaps it is telling people that Buddhism is infinite and omnipresent. Above the Buddha's eyes is a golden spire. Under the blue sky and white clouds, the sutras hanging from the spire to the base of the tower flutter with the wind, as if they were passing the will of the mortals to the gods of heaven. These colorful Sutras were tied up when people came here to worship their wishes. The banner we call Jingbian is actually called Fengma Banner in Tibetans. These flags have five colors. Red represents fire, blue represents sky, white represents cloud, green represents water, and yellow represents land. These five colors are said to represent the five elements that make up the world. The Tibetan mantras, scriptures, Buddha statues and mascots not only have many religious meanings, but also float in the air like dazzling works of art. According to Tibetan Buddhism, "Fengma" refers to the number and channel of human Qi in a deep sense, or specifically to the five elements. Therefore, in the place where the spiritual Qi gathers, the wind horse with the desire of revering gods and praying for blessings is placed, and the wind transmission is conducive to the transmission and Realization of the desire to the gods. Although the Great Buddha Pagoda was expanded in Songzangganbu at that time, most of the inhabitants around it are from Tibet in 1959, and Nepal provided them with a place to live there. Later, some of these people went to India, and many went to other parts of the world. If we look back from the long history, as a sacred place of Tibetan Buddhism, this pagoda has really witnessed the storms and hardships experienced by this nation from the Tang Dynasty to the present. On both sides of the pagoda are Tibetan Buddhist temples and pagodas, where many religious people kowtow their heads or sit quietly and recite scriptures. In front of the prayer wheel around the Great Buddha Pagoda, the pilgrims read the Scriptures while turning the pilgrimage wheel, praying devoutly for the blessings of the gods. The outer circle of the Great Buddha Pagoda is a circular street with dense shops selling Thangka, Tibetan blankets, masks, Tibetan knives, jewelry and other Tibetan religious articles and handicrafts. On the second floor, there are many cafes, restaurants and hotels. From the window of the cafe, we can see the figures of European and American tourists. Whether in Bokala, Badgang or Kathmandu, we can see that many European and American tourists are very happy to travel, they taste the local cultural landscape in coffee. And most of our Chinese tourists are constantly rushing around to catch interesting pictures, which may reflect the differences between eastern and Western cultures.

The Pagoda of Bodahar is located 8 kilometers east of Kathmandu, Nepal's capital city. It is one of Nepal's famous monuments. It is the world's largest bowl-shaped semi-circular pagoda building, 38 meters high, 100 meters in circumference. This pagoda is usually thought to have been built by the 6th century King Shiva Dewa of the Lichavi Dynasty. When the tower was built, Nepal was in a drought and could not get water, so the builders gathered dew and mortar. Therefore, the tower also has a name dewdrop Tower . It is said that the pagoda contains the relics of the ancient Buddha Carthage Buddha, which has a history of more than 1200 years. The tower consists of four parts: tower base, tower base, tower cone and tower crown. The base of the tower falls on the ground and is a huge dome-shaped roof. Under the circular base there are also layers of broad and tall white stone foundation. The base of each layer is two rectangles and one square-quot; ten-quot; the characters overlap, so each layer has 12 angles. On the 12 corners of the base, there is a small Buddhist pagoda several meters high. There are stone steps on all sides of the base leading to the semi-circular tower foundation, and there are stone lion pairs beside the stone steps. There is a square pagoda on the grand white bowl, with huge Buddha's eyes painted on all sides, indicating that Buddhism is infinite and omnipresent. The pyramids above here have 13 steps representing the steps of Buddha formation. The tower crown symbolizes Buddha. The circular tower is surrounded by a ring wall several meters away from the base. There are 147 recessed niches on the outer wall of the ring wall and 108 meditation Buddha statues on the inner side of the inner suspension wheel. The statue of the little Buddha was stained with red paint and yellow flowers, and the banners fluttered with the wind. The whole pagoda represents the composition of all things by the four elements of earth, water, fire and wind, which are called quot in Buddhism; four harmony and quot;. There are some Tibetan Buddhist temples outside the dome. The colorful Tangka, the colorful sutras dancing in the breeze, the golden wheels, the strong butter smell and the occasional chanting sound will make you mistake yourself for coming to Tibet. The whole group of Buddhist pagodas is like a small hilly city. There is a circular street between the houses and the Buddhist houses. Most of the residents are Tibetan. There are many Buddhists in Bhutan, Sikkim and Tibet during the annual worship season.
