A Buddhist temple near the Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu is home to a large prayer wheel. The intention is to circulate clockwise, spinning the wheel and saying mantras. This wheel stands 20 feet tall and would strike a bell every time it turned. People also circle the nearby stupa in the same direction, spinning smaller prayer wheels.
