Kathmandu - Bodhnath Temple

From Varanassi we flew to Kathmandu, Nepal.  One of the highlights of Kathmandu is the Bodhnath Stupa.  It is the largest stupa in Nepal.  It is ringed with a pedestrian walkway where many vendors display jewelry, beads, spices, clothing and other traditional Nepalese and Tibetan wares.  There are restaurants, hotels, and craft workshops.

Kathmandu is a bead-lover's paradise.  All that turquoise in the photo above are large plastic bags brimming with turquoise beads.
