Photo and caption by Jolene Hurt

As the wind parted the prayer flags, the eyes of Boudhanath appeared. I quickly snapped this picture before they disappeared again. Boudhanath stupa is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Kathmandu, Nepal. It is one of the largest and most significant Buddhist monuments in the world.

Location: Kathmandu, Nepal
