Chorten Kora

Chorten Kora is a stupa located in the town of Trashiyangtse in eastern Bhutan. It was built in the 18th century by Lama Ngawang Loday to subdue a demoness that had been terrorizing the area. The stupa is known for its unique architecture, which combines Bhutanese and Tibetan styles, and for the annual Chorten Kora festival, which attracts many pilgrims from Bhutan and neighboring Arunachal Pradesh, India. During the festival, pilgrims circumambulate the stupa and participate in traditional dances and ceremonies. The stupa is also believed to have the power to fulfill the wishes of those who circumambulate it with a pure heart. Chorten Kora is considered one of the most important religious sites in eastern Bhutan and is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in Bhutanese culture and spirituality.
