  Wisdom Eyes on Nepalese stupa

 

Nepal

Wisdom Eyes on the famous Bodnath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal. In addition, Buddhist prayer flags (fig.) run downward along the stupa's peak, whilst its outer walls are lined with prayer wheels. Since this stupa is in the Tibetan style, it may also be referred to as a chorten.
