Boudhanath Stupa, Nepal Part 1 of 2

 The Boudhanath (Boudha) Stupa (a UNESCO Heritage Site) is one of the largest in the world. I was struck by its huge sperical dome. It's a must-see, only 20 mins away on a micro-bus from Kathmandu.
 I saw many Tibetans here. A number of them have their own buinesses in the stupa complex.

 A prayer wheel found in all Tibetan stupas. I noticed  a woman devoteee going round and round spinning the wheel for a long time.
