Find a place of calm at Japanese Peace Pagoda, a monument that promotes world peace and cultural understanding.

  • Beautiful place. I suggest you visit just as r gets dark as there is absolutely no cried and you can get beautiful pics. Plus you cab and attend the prayers in the nearby Japanese monastery.
  • Tranquil Place and well maintained. Visit the temple during the prayer time and Drum along with the chanting by the monks.
  • Peace and beautiful place. Worth watching. Calm place
  • Beautiful place. Not far from Darjeeling mall road. Japanese temple and Peace pagoda at the same place. Beautiful hill view from here with lovey cloudly environment. Different type of big Buddha sculpture. Definitely lovely place.
