We return to Kathmandu by flight. After refreshments, we visit Boudhanath Stupa. A protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, Boudhanath Stupa is regarded as the most important centre of Tibetan Buddhism outside Tibet. The plinths supporting the Stupa has been designed to resemble a giant ‘mandala’ or the Buddhist cosmic world. At the four corners, sit the Dhyani Buddhas, while the fifth Buddha, Vairocana, sits at the centre. Buddhists believe that the remains of Kasyapa Buddha (Lord Buddha’s previous incarnation) were interred at the spot where the stupa is built. At this holy site, light butter lamps and pray to Lord Buddha to bestow his blessings upon you.

Later we proceed to Swoyambhunath Temple. Located on a hilltop, Swoyambhunath is regarded as the first temple in Kathmandu valley. According to local folklore, the Bodhisattva Manjushri built a temple here after draining the water that inundated Kathmandu valley.
