Situated on the slopes of the Jalapahar Hill, Peace Pagoda is a symbol of peace and unity in Darjeeling. The pagoda is counted among the popular landmarks of the destination. Its foundation stone was laid by Nichidatsu Fujii, a revered monk from Japan, who founded the 'Nipponzan Myohoji Buddhist Order'.  Inside the pagoda, there are four iridescent, gold-polished statues of Lord Buddha. The walls are adorned with eight sandstone carvings that depict stories of various stages of Gautama Buddha’s life. The divinity of the place is elevated by the chanting of the mantra ‘Nam Myoho Renge Kyo’ by monks.  Measuring 94 feet in height and about 23 metres in diameter, the pagoda is the highest free standing structure in Darjeeling. From the top of this white pagoda, visitors can behold breathtaking views of Darjeeling’s lush landscape along with the distant Kanchenjunga Range. 2.Triger hill Sunrise

Japanese Temple & Peace Pagoda
Darjeeling এ আজ আমাদের শেষ দিন। আজ আমরা sightseeing শুরু করলাম Peace Pagoda থেকে।এখানে ঢোকার মুখেই রয়েছে Japanese Buddhist Temple।
On the second day, I headed to the Peace Pagoda and the Japanese temple, where huge tall trees lay the way in. With the clouds in and no sign of sun, the place appeared no less than a mystic land. The upper level of the temple houses a prayer hall where one can sit back and tune along with the monks to chant the holy mantra 'Om Mani Padme Hum'. A walk through the beautiful garden leads one to the Peace Pagoda where is a stark white structure amidst tall haunting trees in the background.
