Worlds Largest Stupa – Boudhanath Stupa


Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a landlocked country in South Asia with a total area of 1,47,181 square kilometers. It is located mainly in the Himalayas, but also includes parts of the Indo-Gangetic Plain with an estimated population of 29.94 million. It borders China in the north and India in the south, east and west while Bangladesh is located within only 27 km of its southeastern tip and Bhutan separated by Indian State.

Kathmandu is known as the city of temples, with one of the oldest Pagoda temple Pashupatinath. The valley is in the bowl-shaped formation surrounded by giant hills all around. According to the ancient history of Swaymbu Purana, present-day Kathmandu was once a huge and deep lake named “Nagdaha”, as it was full of snakes. The lake was cut drained by Bodhisatwa Manjusri with his sword, and the water was evacuated out from there. The valley is historically termed as “Nepal Mandala” and has been the home of Newar people, a cosmopolitan urban civilization in the Himalayas foothills.

The city was the royal capital of the kingdom of Nepal and hosts palaces, mansions and gardens of the Nepalese aristocracy. Kathmandu is and has been for many years the center of Nepal’s history, art, culture and economy. It has a multiethnic population within a Hindu and Buddhist majority. Moreover, the city is the gateway to the Nepalese Himalayas and home to several World Heritage Sites, Durbar Square, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath and Pashupatinath. However, historic areas of Kathmandu were severely damaged by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on 25 April  2015. Some of the buildings have been restored and some are in the process of reconstruction until now.
