Gorsam Chorten Overview

Ranked 14 of 31 sightseeing in Tawang

Gorsam Chorten, located at a distance of 90 kilometre from Tawang town, is the largest stupa of the entire area. Believed to be constructed in the early part of 12th century, it is founded by a Monpa monk, Lama Pradhar. On the top of the chorten is a semi-circular dome that rests up on a three-terraced plinth. In addition, on the lower most terrace of the plinth, there are four miniature stupas standing erect on the four corners.

The base of this chorten is squared with each side about 170 feet in length with a niche running along its whole length. Moreover, there are around 120 manis set in the wooden frames. Encircling the stupa is a well paved path on which pilgrims go roundabout for praying, which is also known as Kora.
