Chortens

Chortens are the most known symbolic structures of the Buddhist culture. The earliest recorded Chorten here, is the Great Chorten and Small Chorten, both dating back to 13th century. These are decorated gateways and are actually known for their historical links to the monuments. They are called 'Kakani Chorten'. Other Chortens were added later on in the 13th &14th century. The Alchi monastic complex itself, has three other Chortens which have old, but beautiful paintings in them.
