Do-Drul Chorten (Stupa)

DO-DRUL CHORTEN (STUPA)

Located on a hillock in Gangtok, the Stupa is marked by a golden dome that can be seen from various places in Gangtok.  The Stupa was built by the Venerable Trulshik Rinpoche, head of the Nyingma order of Tibeten Buddhism, in 1945. It is surrounded by Chorten Lakhang and Guru Lakhang, where there are two huge statues of Guru Padmasambhava. It is regarded as one of the most important Buddhist stupas of Sikkim.
