The most popular Tibetan pilgrimage site in the old town is this lovely stupa, a small copy dating from around 1650 of the great Swayambhunath complex. The stupa is set in a hidden courtyard which saw only minor damage in the 2015 earthquake. Just as at Swayambhunath, there is a two-storey pagoda to Hariti, the goddess of smallpox, in the northwestern corner of the square. In the northeast corner is the Drubgon Jangchup Choeling Monastery . It’s just a couple of minutes’ walk south of Thamel.
