Tashi Gomang Stupa, Crestone, Co (9-25-10)--("The Stupa of Many Auspicious Doors" – thus named for Buddha's 84,000 paths to enlightenment)
A STUPA is a Buddhist monument erected as a commemorative shrine and site of pilgrimage. Stupas are typically filled with hundreds of thousands of Buddhist religious relics. Buddhist practitioners circumambulate (walk around) stupas while reciting mantras as a form of spiritual discipline.
