For me, Boudhanath is about finding out the pure unbroken culture passing towards their generation.

The Big Circle Stupa, people making clockwise rounding the stupa. Be the part of hassle and dazzle of local people, sharing their lifestyle with you. See all the antics pieces related to Buddhism.

 The town, Little Tibet for you, one who miss Tibet.

 It will always welcome you modernization and globalization, can get traditional food to western food, just name it. Watching this place and comes often with my camera, take some shots.

It is common one is able to see people taking self fie and gathering point for everyone. If you see the sky, howling sound of prayers flag. Music of Buddhism and local murmuring sound always inspire you to sit for while with music

Home of Peace, sweetness, and gathering

Gyalpo Lhosar- The Sherpas Year

Gyalpo Lhosar, mostly observed in the winter, adds more fun to the morning chills of February. This year it is being celebrated on Friday. The word 'Lo' meaning "year' and 'Sar' meaning 'new' completes the word 'Lhosar'. Gyalpo Lhosar marks the beginning of Tibetan New Year. The festival is mostly celebrating it. There are 12 years in the Tibetan Calendar, each categorized under a variety of animals.
Since this Gyalpo Lhosar 2145 marks the dog year, it is also called the 'year of the Dog'. As the word Gyalpo means 'King', ancient Tibetan history defines that the day is celebrated because a Tibetan King, Tri Ralpachen, won victory over Mongolian warriors on the very day. It is a 15-day celebration, while the main celebration takes space during the first three days. To mark this annual occasion, four major essentials of Gyalpo Lhosar.

Considered as one of the ancient offerings to god, Chhemar is a mixture of a quality assortment of foods. The wooden container that consists of Chhemar is equally divided in two sections where a mixture of milk, honey, ghee, curd, fruit, and nuts is kept on the left side while the mixture of tsampa (fried wheat flour), wheat and millet on the right. On the center, decorative figures of flowers are made form torma (a mixture of flour and butter) to accentuate the look of Chhemar. Its consumption is rare and especially done on the occasion of Gyalpo Lhosar

Originated from Tibet, changkol is a type of home-brewed beer which can be made out of rice, millet, and corn. As per the ancient beliefs, changkol is believed to have health benefits and help in enhancing physical immunity. It is especially used as an offering to god. and also for prayer purposes. Kept in a special container called 'dambey', the rim of the container is decked with a tiny blob of butter which generally symbolizes good luck. Changkol is served to the family members once the praying and offering are finished.

Dherka is one of the special offerings made to god on the very first day of Lhosar. It consists of flour-based food items known as khapse and bhulu. All of these are stacked and layers on top of each other. Khapse is basically a flat and crunchy food made out of flour, sugar and milk mixture.Bhulu is a round shaped flour-based food with the sugar powders sprinkled on the top of it. Both of the items are fried in oil which gives them a light brown texture and a crunchy. tase. Besides these items, dherka also consists of different food items like coconut, a variety of fruits and nuts, babar (rice chapatti ) and deysi (a mixture of rice, ghee, honey and dry fruits). People these days prefer adding up a wide variety of ingredients to make Dherka more special for this once in a year occasion.

Chham (Tsam)
Gyalpo Lhosar also calls for sacred prayer events and religious programs at different Buddhist monasteries. In the early morning of the first day, People visit monasteries and receive a blessing from Rinpoche and also from the elderly members of the family. Every year on the occasion, Chham (a scared dance) is performed in monasteries for interest viewers. It is generally performed praying for peace and prosperity that the New Year is believed to brings to its followers. A group of monks donning heavy costumes and face masks perform the sacred dance on the premises of various monasteries. The dance is carried out in a set of beats and rhythms with religious musical instruments.
