The Stupa is breathtaking! Enter and go to the top dome for great views and quiet meditation. The prayer flags waving in the wind add a rainbow of color to your photos!

Fabulous Stupa, surrounded by prayer wheels. You can walk all around it, admire the tall stupa, the prayer flags - ever so picturesque and interesting.

This was a lovely stupa. Plenty of places to eat, drink, shop and people watch. We went early and the place was not as busy as a few people have mentioned.

Visiting The Boudh Stupa was a very good experience. Inside the Stupa complex, there are many shops for tourists to buy the local trinklets, gifts. There is also a Buddhist Temple inside the Boudh Stupa complex. Loved to hear the chanting that was going on.

Emer... the Stupa is in a hug round square accessible from several points, which are narrow alleys, but you can reach each alley by car and walk just a few meters to the roundabout where the Stupa is.
