This is an English translation of the treasure text (gter ma) Rdo rje nyi ma'i gnas yig gsang ba'i dkar chag. The text gives fantastic accounts of the creation of the sacred sites in the area called Chöten nyima (mchod rten nyi ma), or Dorjé nyima (rdo rje nyi ma), a popular pilgrimage destination in the border area of Tibet and Sikkim. It was revealed by Rigdzin Gökyi demtruchen (rig 'dzin rgod kyi ldem 'phru can). The introduction presents information on this famous treasure revealer (gter ston), as well as on the area described in the text. The Tibetan text is given together with the translation.
