Chorten Kora monument is a replica of the Boudhanath temple of Nepal. An annual event known as the Dakpa Kora draws people from across the country and the neighboring Indian district of Arunachal Pradesh. Devotees circumambulate for days. According to the legend, a Dakini from Arunachal Pradesh entombed herself inside the temple. It was an act of sacrifice for the greater good of the people. Dakpa Kora is a memorial of that event.
