Do Drul Chorten Stupa, Gangtok

(240+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Admire the exquisite golden top of Do Drul Chorten Stupa, visible from many far-away spots in Gangtok. Built by Trulshik Rinpoche (a celebrated lama of the Nyingma order of Tibetan Buddhism) in 1945, the stupa drove away haunted evil spirits that were believed to rule the area. Read mantras inscribed on the 108 prayer wheels while turning them clockwise. Inside the stupa, find a complete set of holy books, Buddhist drums, and other relics. The stupa welcomes anyone to pray inside and charges no admission fee, although it graciously accepts donations. Make Do Drul Chorten Stupa a centerpiece of your Gangtok vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Gangtok vacation generator.

  • Small monastery with prayer wheels and few stupas, situated at the center of Gangtok city near Institute of Tibetology. Not much to do around, but had a very peaceful atmosphere.  more »
  • If you have seen monasteries in your life, you can skip this one. there is nothing much to do here. We were in and out in 15 mins.  more »
  • ITs very beautiful. Feels very calming. You can see the monastery, the Stupa... Monks chanting prayers in their halls... This is usually a part of the taxi tours by operators. So wont be missed at all...  more »
