The Chendebji Chorten
This large chorten (a stone Buddhist monument
often containing relics) sits quietly by the side of the road, a few miles
from the small village of Chendebji and far from any large town.
Built by a Tibetan lama in the 19th century to cover the
remains of an evil spirit who was killed on the spot, the chorten,
in Nepalese style, is modelled after the Swayambhunath in Kathmandu.
