The National Memorial Chorten or Thimphu Chorten also known as Memorial Stupa was built in memory of Third Druk Gyalpo or the Third King of Bhutan, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck and is dedicated to World Peace. The chorten is a large white structure crowned with a golden spire.

It is located close to the center of Thimphu city and is one of its most iconic monuments. Elderly Bhutanese people circumambulate the Chorten throughout the day.

Chorten literally means ‘Seat of Faith’ and Buddhists often call such monuments, the ‘Mind of Buddha’. The Chorten is an extraordinary example of Buddhist architecture and artwork with its gorgeous paintings and intricate sculptures.

The Chorten is built in a Tibetan style that are also called the Jangchup Chorten, patterned on the design of a classical stupa, with a pyramidal pillar crowned by a crescent moon and sun. The feature that is distinct here is the outward flaring of the rounded part to give the shape of a vase (a pyramidal shape), unlike a dome shape.
