Peace Pagoda - Review
Peace Pagoda is centrally located in Darjeeling. Spreading the notion of World peace and harmony is the purpose for which it was built under the guidance of Nichidatsu Fujii, a Buddhist monk of Japan, who tried to promote the world unity. It required almost three years to finish it. It has a golden color statue of Gautama Buddha inside it.
It makes sense to visit it during prayer time as you will be able to take in the wonderful atmosphere. This is a once in a life time experience. The atmosphere of the pagoda is peaceful and enchanting. It is a serene place where one will be left spell bound. Another important feature of the pagoda is that. It is neat and clean and well maintained by the monks.
It has many sculptures on its walls which tell us the mythological stories. The entry gate of the pagoda is guarded by two lions' sculptures, a majestic golden in color. The name itself suggests the very purpose of its existence - to promote the world peace in a serene atmosphere. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Darjeeling itinerary 1 day.

Peace Pagoda, Darjeeling Reviews
This place is located in a secluded part of Darjeeling town. The road leading to it winds through a small forest that surrounds the temple complex. The forest makes the whole area quite peaceful and if you visit early morning it feels very calm and serene. The temple is Japanese - very simple and bare ("to the point"). The pagoda is nearby and it's big but very well-maintained - looks beautiful and grand. You have to climb a few steps to reach the dome itself and then you can walk around the base of the dome looking at the reliefs and frescos with scenes from Buddha's life. The garden around the pagoda is also well-maintained and beautiful.
Lovely peaceful place. Nice well maintained premises too. Lovely views of kanchanjungha is also available from here. Nice flower garden is also all over the place. Well maintained structure too. It's worth a visit and suggested to come here by walking only to feel the surroundings.
Quite meditation point and sun setting observation point. This place gave me an opportunity to see various forms if sun setting and letting meditation moment at this Darjeeling point. Simply an amazing place to visit when you are in Darjeeling. I must say one need to meditate at this place which is familiar and famous for peaceful nature. This hilly terrain is best to soul rhythm, soul seeking place to look. Amazing place to be in company of 😍😇

NICE AMBIENCE AND VERY WELL MAINTAINED PLACE, PEACEFUL AND CLAM. IF YOU ARE FORTUNATE, YOU MAY ATTEND THE PRAYER. NICE VIEW OF SURROUNDING FROM TOP OF THE STUPA.
