About Do-drul Chorten

Soak yourself in the spiritual tranquillity of Do-drul Chorten Stupa in Gangtok. Themed in white and marked by a golden spire, it is an emblematic symbol of peace. On entering the stupa, you find almost 108 Mani-Lhakor, commonly called as prayer wheels engraved with holy mantras. Turn the wheels to feel the divinity of this place flowing through your senses. The Chorten follows the 'Mandala' sects of Dorjee Phurba and one set of 'Ka-gyur' principles along with mantras and relics. Chorten Lhakhang and Guru Lhakhang, the two gargantuan statues of Guru Rimpoche encircle the Chorten. You can see young and eager monks studying and working inside the Stupa under the guidance of Lamas.

Historical Context: Believed to be haunted by evil spirits, this place was once dreaded by the local population of the area. Then, a great Lama - Trulshig Rinpoche of Tibet, came here and built a stupa in 1945. Since then, the evil is said to be driven away.
