Peace Pagoda

After the dropping of bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Buddhist saint Fuiji decided to spread the message of peace and harmony all around the world and this pagoda in Darjeeling is just one example of the movement. This is a Japanese Style pagoda built by the Buddhist Monk. The foundation stone was laid down in 1972 by Nichidatsu Fujii and the pagoda was completed by his biggest disciple Guruji Fuiji and opened in 1992. It is a white pagoda and white is the symbol of peace. The aim of this place was to entertain everyone irrespective of their caste and religion. You will find immense peace when you come here.

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.

If you are up for a hike, then the Peace Pagoda and Japanese Buddhist Temple make for an interesting one. Nestled a few hundred feet above Darjeeling and virtually away from the crowds, the temple complex is a quiet escape from the town's bustle.
