It is the world's biggest Stupa located about two kilometers to the north of Pashupatinath temple.This colossal Stupa is known by the name of Boudha Nath,the god of wisdom.It is difficult to assign a period to it as some believe that it was built during the reign of either Shiva Deva or Anshu Verma in the 7th century A.D..The desing is much like the Swayambhu Stupa,except that the final consists of receding squares instead of circles.Bouddhanath attracts Buddhist pilgrims from all over the world.
