Do Drul Chorten is one of the most important stupas in Sikkim, nestled in the stunning valleys of Gangtok. Built in 1945 under the supervision of late Truslshi and Rimpoche, the Stupa has around 108 Mani Lhakor or prayer wheels. These wheels are engraved with important mantras which can be chanted by rotating them. The quaint serenity and calmness of Do Drul Chorten has attracted tourists and devotees since years.
The Korten Stupa was once believed to be haunted by evil spirits until the very respected Lama Trulshig Rinpoche came to this place and built a stupa in 1946. The diety engraved on top of this stupa is Vajra Kilaya who is considered to be one of the most prominent chortens in Sikkim. Inside the monastery is the complete set of Dorjee Phurba, holy Buddhist texts and other religious paraphernalia. Do Drul Chorten has a dharma preaching centre on its premises which was established by Dodhrubchen Rinpoche. The stupa is surrounded by Chorten Lakhang housing two huge statues of Guru Padmasambhava. This is a quaint little place for people seeking solace in the hill town.
