Kopan Monastery

Sagnik Basu
Each year in November, around 200 students from around the world travel to Kopan monastery for one month of meditation and insight into the Dharma. Once the home of the astrologer to the king of Nepal, Kopan is a now a thriving monastery of over 300 monks, and a spiritual oasis for hundreds of visitors yearly from around the world. A great place to learn about Tibetan Buddhism, there's classes on Buddhism everyday at 10am besides Saturday. Opening once every week, on the top of the hills(Kathmandu outskirts) this is a great shrine to visit.
