Although there are varying accounts of the origin of the stupa, the locals attest that the stupa entombs the remains of Kassapa Buddha. Pilgrims visit the stupa on a daily basis to perform circumambulation. Surrounded by shops, diners, and houses from all sides, you will have to push the crowd to get a good sight of the stupa. The tour ends with a brief visit to Swayambhunath.
