The Bönpo tradition of Tibet also has Stupa.

The selection of Stupas i offer is composed of pieces of good quality made of noble materials (glass, sandal wood, brass, stones...), as much as possible i also tried to offer Stupas handmade by artisans instead of industrialy made Stupas.

inside a stupa
A stupa alway countain various relics and sacred objects, in a room that is most of the time walled and inaccessible, but i managed to take this photo of the inside of the antique Chedi
at Wat Phra Tat Choeng Chum as this Stupa has an access door,
that is open for devotee a few days every year.
This way you can see what the inside of an antique Stupa in Thailand look like.
