Even if Nepal officially adopted Hinduism, the reality however remains more contrasted. The history and the culture of this small kingdom are indeed indissociable of the Buddhist practice - which was the principal religion for centuries. Didn't Buddha saw its first light in Nepal? Today, the presence of an important Tibetan community reinforces the legitimacy of this religious worship in the Nepalese capital. On both ends of the city, are two monuments of an incredible majesty: Swayambhunath and its perched stupa dominating Kathmandu, and Bodhnath, monumental construction gathering around it the city's Tibetan community.
