Nepal’s largest stupa, one of the holiest pilgrimage sites in Tibetan Buddhism, was festooned with biodegradable prayer flags on Saturday after devotees replaced the more common synthetic version with a greener alternative.
Colourful prayer flags – which have auspicious symbols and prayers inscribed on them – are an integral part of Buddhist rituals.
