Bodhnath stupa is a bastion of Tibetan culture in the heart of the Kathmandu valley.
energized by the arrival of thousands of Tibetans after the 1959 Chinese invasion,
the temple has become one of the most important centers of Tibetan Buddhism outside
of Tibet and is the focal point for Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal.. It is known to Tibetans
as Chorten Chempa or the “Great Stupa"
Bodnath is the largest stupa in Nepal and from the air it looks like a giant Mandala,
or diagram of the Buddhist cosmos..there are always some sacred items inside a stupa
but it is not known exactly what is in the Bodhnath Stupa.. some believed that there
is a bone from Buddha inside..
