The Chorten Tower
During the ascent of the Himalayas Tintin, Haddock and Sherpa Tharkey found themselves in front of a Chorten. Despite the Sherpa's warning, Haddock walks clockwise past the Chorten, which is bad luck and results in a series of disasters which include costing the Captain his beloved whisky. Chorten (in Tibetan) or Stupa (in Sanskrit) is a funeral monument in which the ashes of the great Lamas are preserved.
Tintin in Tibet was first published in 1960 - Hergé.
