removed the commercial external link. content was unrelated, and does not show anything of Bodnah stupah or square. --Freevox 12:22, 30 July 2006 (UTC)
The actual name of the place is not Bodnath (which comes out बोड्नाथ in nepali) it is Bouddhanath or Bouddhanaath (which comes out बौद्ध्नाथ in nepali). The word Bouddhanath comes from Buddha (Siddartha Gautam or Gautam Buddha or Gotama) and Naath (meaning lord in nepali). So I strongly recomment the name of the article be changed to Bouddhanath. I searched "bouddhanath" but couldnt find and I believe many others have also not found the article for the same reason.
- I am very sorry if I made a mistake. I became confused by another article on the same subject in the wikify backlog. Please change as you see fit or give me instructions on what you want me to do to rectify mistakes. Sincerely, Mattisse 17:08, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
- Boudhanath also now refers to the whole area or surrounding neighbourhood. A more specific title like Boudhanath Stupa might be better. [User:CFynn|Chris Fynn]] (talk) 06:21, 6 November 2015 (UTC)

2015 earthquake damage
I changed 'an earthquake toppled the stupa' to 'minor damage.' I was there yesterday. It is hardly damaged at all. Amazing, really, in the circumstances. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 03:17, 1 May 2015 (UTC)RJS
- Actually the damage was not as minor as it may have looked at first. While the stupa certainly didn't topple, the top spire was severely damaged and they ended up having to remove it entirely. This part has been done now (Nov 2015) and they have just started the reconstruction - but this is expected to take a year (or so) to be completed. Several of the smaller stupas surrounding the main one were badly damaged too.Chris Fynn (talk) 06:27, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
