Personal highlights

  1. Bouddha Stupa: an important shrine along the old trade route
  2. So many people are walking endless circles around the Stupa
  3. UNESCO: along with many other temples in the Kathmanduinfo-icon valley
  4. It required heavy renovation after the Nepalinfo-icon earthquake of 2015
  5. I only had a few minutes left to observe this miracle before sunset
