Chendebji Chorten

Chendebji Chöten, built in the style of the great Bodhanath Chöten of Nepal, was constructed by Tshering Wangchuk son of Yon-Say and the Mahasiddha Zhidag in accordance with the prophecy of the Second Gangteng Tulku Tenzin Lekpai Dhundrup in order to subdue harmful, anti religious demons. It is located 41 km west of Trongsa in Bhutan at 2430 meters in elevation.

A Sambha Lhundrup Molam Chenmo festival is held there annually from the 21st to the 25th day of the 9th lunar month of the Bhutanese calendar.
