Do-Drul Chorten

Built by late Trulsi Rimpoche in 1945, Do-Drul Chorten is one of the most important and biggest stupas found in Sikkim. Around the stupa, there are 108 prayer wheels. Chorten Lakhang and Guru Lhakhang surround the stupa, where there are two huge statues of Guru Rimpoche. Complete mandala sets of Dorjee Phurba (Bajra Kilaya), a set of Kan-gyur relics (holy books), Zung (mantras) and other religious objects are present inside the stupa.
