Tibetan beggar in pilgrim flow, Boudhanath, Kathmandu, Nepal

Many beggars wait for donation from the pilgrims performing the Kora.

Today crowds of tibetan people are making the Kora from early in the morning until late in the evening. Kora is a kind of meditative walk around stupa, monastries or holy mountains (like the Kailash). The most devotee ones make full body prosternations after every step. Non buddhist visitors (like many nepalis) can walk around with the pilgrims.

The original stupa was built in the sixth century. Badly damaged by 2015 earthquake, it is completely repaired today (2017). Tibetan merchants have rested and offered prayers here for many centuries. When refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many decided to live around Boudhanath. The Stupa is said to entomb the remains of Kassapa Buddha
