The Do - Drul Chorten or Stupa was built by the Venerable Trullshi Rimpoche, head of the Nymgma order of Tibeten Buddhism, in 1945. Inside the stupa, there are compere mandala set of Dorjee phurba (Vajra Kilaya), Holy Book, complete 'Zung' or mantras and other religious objects of historical importance. Around the Chorten, there are 108 Mani Lhakor (Prayer Wheels) perhaps the most photographed objects. These are turned by devout Buddhists while chanting 'Om Mane Padme Hum' (O Jewel in the Lotus) to invoke the Bodhisattva and is equally followed by tourist. It is surrounded by Chorten Lakhang and Guru Lakhang. One can also come across two huge statues of Guru Padmasambhava.
