Boudhanath (also called Bouddhanath, Bodhnath or Baudhanath or the Khāsa Caitya) is one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Bouddha, Nepal. Located about 11 km (7 miles) from the center and northeastern outskirts of Kathmandu, the stupa's massive mandala makes it one of the largest spherical stupas in Nepal.
The Buddhist stupa of Boudhanath dominates the skyline. The ancient Stupa is one of the largest in the world. The influx of large populations of Tibetan refugees from China has seen the construction of over 50 Tibetan Gompas (Monasteries) around Boudhanath. As of 1979, Boudhanath is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Thanks for looking!

A very familiar sight, but you managed to do an original take on it (at least for me). This makes this succesful shot.

very impressive, I like how you used these little flags to create depth and at the same time focus on the eyes. And on top it´s also technically flawless.
