Nepal Kathmandu

Bodhnath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal. Situated on an early trade route between Kathmandu and Lhasa, Bodhnath was a religious site as early as the 7th century. The present stupa, Nepals largest, was constructed probably in the 14th century. Since the invasion of Tibet by Chinese Communist troops in 1950, the migration of Buddhist refugees to Bodhnath has made this stupa and its surrounding monasteries a world center of Tibetan Buddhism.
