Chenga Kora

March 14, 2025

Chorten Kora, located in Eastern Bhutan, stands as a beloved tourist destination and a revered stupa. Its splendid design and serene atmosphere captivate visitors. Inspired by Nepal’s iconic Boudhanath Stupa, Chorten Kora showcases intricate Buddhist architecture. Set alongside the glistening Kulong Chu River in Trashiyangtse, this magnificent structure holds deep religious and cultural significance. Lama Ngawang Loday, the nephew of the revered Lama Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, dedicated 12 years to its construction in the 18th century.

The Chorten Kora Festival, also known as the Circumambulation Festival, involves Bhutanese people (specifically the Drukpa community) performing a sacred circumambulation around the famous Chorten Kora stupa. This takes place during the 15th day of the buddhist month.
