Chorten Ningpo


Chorten Nyenpo is not a chorten but a temple built on the top of a hill in Chumey above the place called Kakaling or Yamtrak. It takes a good 45 minutes on foot to access it. It was founded in 1587 by Tenpey Nyima, the Zhabdrung’s father, on his journey through Bhutan from Tibet. He took a consort Ani Machig from the lineage of the great religious figure Pema Lingpa. A family looks after the temple. It is a small building, typical of the unassuming architectural style of this period in Bhutan. The stone throne where Tenpey Nyima gave his teachings is still there. It is a venerated place kept by a caretaker but without much activity because of its isolated location.
