Description
Chaktshel means obeisance or sign of respect - and seems to refer to the long line that forms parallel to the temple and pays its collective respects to the deities within. This dance is now maintained only in Korphu.Korphu Drup begins the evening of Jan. 3, 2007 with a religious ceremony held in front of the Lhakhang followed by a Mewang, the burning of a large gate that everyone is invited to pass beneath whilst it's still burning. Various ging dances are also performed during the mewang.
