The great stupa of Boudhanath in Kathmandu is one of the largest in Nepal and a major pilgrimage site as well as tourist attraction. It is thought to have been built in the late 6th century CE by a king of the Nepalese Licchavi Kingdom and was enlarged and expanded upon later, most likely in the 14th century CE.
