Do Drul Chorten Stupa

Timings: 8 A.M. - 6 P.M.
The Do-Drul Chorten was built by the Venerable Trulshi Rimpoche, head of the Nyingma order of Tibetan Buddhism in 1945. Arguably the most popular Stupa (a dome-shaped Buddhist shrine) in Sikkim, Do Drul Chorten is located at a short walking distance from the Research Institute of Tibetology and atop a hillock. It is surrounded by 108 prayer wheels on which Buddhist mantras are engraved. The monks and tourists swirl the wheels, which is equivalent to completing 108 beads of recital. The gold plated steeple atop the Chorten is what Do Drul is famous for. The deity enshrined on top of the Chorten or Stupa is known as Dorjee Phurpa or Vajra Kilaya. The Stupa is surrounded by Chorten Lakhang, where there are two huge statues of Guru Rimpoche (Guru Padmasambhava).
