I LOVE LOVE LOVE! Bouddha. It’s one of the most peaceful places in Kathmandu which is really surprising since Bouddha is in the middle of one of the busiest and noisiest part of KTM.
I remember when I was 16, I had just finished going around the Stupa spinning the wheels and my dad called to tell me my GCSE results. I was so happy when he told me the results and my day was instantly better. From then on I’ve always visited a Buddhist temple whenever my results are nearing and probably why I hold Bouddha so dear to my heart.
As a “tourist” I feel I can get away with being excited all the time. There was a bunch of pigeons and it was kind of like a mini Trafalgar Square, so my cousin and I tried to chase the pigeons so we could try and capture the “perfect” pigeon photo. Needless to say we kind of failed, or really failed.
But anyways, Bouddha is very popular with tourists and (for obvious reasons) one of the holiest places in Nepal. It’s so amazing how religious and cultural Nepal is. It’s one of the reasons why Nepal is so popular and the BEST countries to visit. There’s so much history, culture, traditions, people, teachings, places, food, architecture to discover.
After visiting the Stupa, we went to a restaurant across the street and enjoyed an amazing view of the stupa and KTM whilst enjoying our yummy momo and C-momo (nommm). Oh, I also took some shameless selfies with the stupa, don’t regret it at all.
Gahhh, Nepal is too beautiful.
