Shanti Stupa, Leh


It was my first visit to dream destination Ladakh. Luckily my stay in Ladakh was near to this beautiful Shanti Stupa. It is the most magnificent stupa I have ever seen. Beautiful white dommed stupa was made by Japanese Bhikshu as a part of their Pagoda Mission. The Stupa is built over a high platform. The walls of stupa are painted beautifully with various paintings depicting life of Buddha. There is a meditation hall near the stupa where one can sit and meditate. One can easily reach at this place by road from the Leh city main market. It is an ideal place to sit and relax enjoying the breathtaking panoramic views of mountain ranges of Stok.
