cultured

This amazing stupa is about 32 meters high which has 108 gates, and 76 chapels and shrines. It is the symbol of the Pelkhor Choede. It also has another name 'Ten Thousand Buddha Pagoda'. About ten thousand figures of Buddha are celebrated in the chapels, shrines or as murals in the pagoda, hence its name. The pagoda comprises nearly one hundred chapels which overlap one another. People call this kind of structure 'tower upon tower'.
