Boudhanath, Nepal

The Great Stupa of Boudhanath is a giant white stupa outside of Kathmandu, and is one of the holiest sites in the area.

People come from all over as a pilgrimage, and every day at sunset huge numbers of pilgrims and locals arrive to walk around the stupa. Many chat with their families as they make the nightly ritual.

A few spin the prayer wheels embedded in the side of the stupa as they pass.

Others walk in quiet contemplation.

I enjoyed the sunset and being lost among the crowd.
