Chorten Kora

Originally uploaded by retlaw snellac

Chorten Kora near Trashi Yangtse in Eastern Bhutan was constructed in 1740 by Lama Ngawang Loday in memory of his late uncle, Jungshu Phesan, and to subdue local spirits. The lama went to Nepal himself and brought back a model of Bodhnath carved in a radish. He had it copied here so that people could visit this place instead of making the arduous trip to Nepal.
