Charumati Stupa (also known as Chabahil Stupa, and Dhan Dhoj Stupa) is a stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal.
It was built by Charumati, daughter of the Indian emperor Ashoka, in the 4th century.
In 2003, Charumati Stupa was restored by the locals as it was crumbling due to the "heavy vehicular traffic on the nearby road".
During its restoration process countless artefacts, coins, and manuscripts were found possibly dating back to the Licchavi era.
Stupas in Nepal date back to the Licchavi period.
Swayambhunath is one of the oldest known buildings in the country and was likely built in the 5th century.
It was built in Swayambhu, Kathmandu, where the land was declared as sacred to Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha), by the 3rd Emperor of the Maurya Dynasty Ashoka the Great in the 3rd century BCE.
According to the legends, the stupa came out of a sacred lotus at the centre .
