Namo Buddha

This miracle lies on the top of a hill beyond Panauti and reflects the true form of Buddhism. Access to it either requires a drive or a good hike. We recommend visiting the site on foot, as it provides maximum exposure to peaceful and relaxing views.

So what’s so amazing about this special monastery? Basically, it holds all messages from Buddha to all followers of the religion. An ancient slab placed inside the monastery forwards messages of peace and is also considered to be a perfect place for meditation. About 2 1/2hrs of walk from Dhulikhel to its north, this stupa rests above a ledge nearby to the jungle ridge. In February and March, Tibetans and Bhotias are seen to circulate the site. As a precaution, visits to this site during the monsoon months of May, June and July is extremely discouraged.

A trail further leads to a larger Tibetan Gompa, and in one of the perceived buildings lays a famous stone sculpture depicting the legend of Namo Buddha. This sculpture tells a story about one of the previous lives of Gautam Buddha, basically saying that he encountered a starving tigress and her cubs and sacrificed his flesh to the animals. He is then known to take his next birth as Lord Gautam Buddha. Apparently, the stupa is supposed to contain the hunter’s bones and hair.
