The Memorial Chorten located in the capital city of Thimphu was built in 1974 by Queen Ashi Phuntsho Choden in memory of her son the Third Dragon King of Bhutan Jigme Dorji Wangchuck. The Chorten/stupa depicts larger than life size images of wrathful deities in gory details, with some 36 of them in erotic poses. The main statue of the Buddha is said to grant wishes for the earnest and honest hearted! Every day from dawn till dusk old people and young alike circumambulate the Chorten and on auspicious days, religious ceremonies and initiations are also conducted here. One of the major attractions to visit Bhutan is the numerous stupas and chortens dotting the landscape, with the Memorial Chorten in Bhutan being the most popular.
