I’ve ascended 365 steps and am standing at the largest Buddhist stupa in this small country.  I am surrounded by monkeys, monks, and soldiers.  It is an odd combination at one of the oldest holy sites in this area.  From its high spot overlooking the valley – large eyes painted on all four walls peer out symbolizing Buddha watching over you.   This stupa, near the capital city, was built over 2,000 years ago.  Pilgrims climb its steps daily before dawn and circle its golden spire.

 

This contest ended Dec. 31st.  The correct answer was Swayambhunath Stupa, Nepal
