I visited the Bhouddhinath Temple the day before Losar (Tibetan New Year). It was crowded with monks, tourists, and locals coming to enjoy this monumental Buddhist temple, with its white dome and gold pyramid top with two giant blue and red eyes.
Nick, Savannah, and I walked clockwise around the temple and then entered and made a second circle. The square was humming with the sounds of monks chanting, beating drums, and bells ringing in preparation for Losar. It was only a 40-minute journey by bus and definitely worth seeing!
