Chendebji Chorten (Stupa)

Chendebji Chorten (Stupa) is enroute to Trongsa and is patterned after Kathmandu’s Swayambhunath Stupa, with eyes painted at the four cardinal points. It was built in the 18th century by Lama Shida from Tibet, to cover the remains of an evil spirit that was subdued at this spot.
Kuenga Rabten is about 23 km and about one hour interesting drive from Trongsa town. Kuenga Rabten was the winter palace of the Second King and now looked after by National Commission for Cultural Affairs. It is a pleasant afternoon trip from Trongsa and offers good insight into the early days of Bhutan’s Monarchy.
