Do-Drul Chorten || Do-Drul Chorten (Stupa)

Do-Drul Chorten(Stupa) was built by late Trulshik Rimpoche, head of the Nyingma order of Tibetan Buddhism in 1945. This is one of the most important and the biggest stupa found in Sikkim. Inside this stupa, there are a complete mandala sets of Dorjee Phurba (Bajra Kilaya), Kan-gyur relics (Holy Books), complete 'Zung' (mantras) and other religious objects. Around this Chorten are 108 Mani Lhakor (prayer wheels). These prayer wheels are turned by Buddhist while chanting "Hail to the jewel in the Lotus", to invoke the Buddhisattva. The Chorten is surrounded by Chorten Lakhang and Guru Lakhang, where there are two huge statues of Guru Rimpoche (Guru Padmasambhava).
