Reviews about Boudhanath Stupa

It feels a little similar to the monkey temple, but the religious atmosphere is stronger, on which many worshippers can be seen. Of course, the scenery is great, and there are many interesting shops nearby.

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.
