A stupa is a mound of sorts usually with Buddhist relics buried underneath. Buddist use this as a place to worship by walking around the stupa in a circle while chanting mantras. It is supposed to symbolize the idea that we will never reach enlightenment in our lifetime. This is one of the larger stupas surrounded by a lot of the smaller ones.
