The thangka is a scroll image (whether painted, embroidered, woven, glued or printed) of Tibetan Buddhism and is hung for meditation in temples or in altar room and carried in processions. The thangkas mainly depict tantric deities, Buddhas, bodhisattvas, tutelary deities, lamas, stories from life, kalachakras (wheel of life) and mandalas.
The Bodhanath Stupa - or simply Boudha - has been an important center for Buddhist pilgrims for centuries. The large Buddha eyes look off into the distance in all four directions, symbolizing knowledge. The stupa was built in the 5th century AD and is one of the 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Kathmandu Valley. Lokta paper, known as rice paper, is made from the bark of Daphne Papyracea in Nepal. These plants are found in the forest of the Himalayas between the altitudes of 6500 ft to 9500 ft.
