“Unique area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The area is a very unique area. Budnath Stupa is a very special area in the middle of the city. There are very unique shops, cafés, restaurant and cultural store. Many of restaurants are on rooftops and present unique views of the valley.

“Represents a town square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Bodnath Stupa is known for its grandeur. So imposing is the structure that one stands in awe. What I liked about the place was the life around it, row of shops and rooftop restaurants. Thunga paintings, little artifacts, clothes, trekking gear, you name it and it is there. You can see hoards of tourists strolling around doing window shopping. The rooftop restaurants that dot the stupa are no less attractive. Food is a tardy expensive but with the awesome view of the stupa and the himalayas in the background no one complains.

“Largest Stupa.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

I understand Tibetan Buddhism in detail. And, I can watch the largest Stupa.

A lot of photographs come out while walking slowly because it is wide

“Wonderful area to walk and shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I went here twice during my stay in Kathmandu. It was a quiet oasis with nice restaurants and shopping and the Stupa was interesting to walk around. It was a great place for people watching.
