  • The Shanti stupa all white high in the Himalayan mountains is the blessing of coming closer to the divine. The thrill of walking to your surroundings with all the carved images and representations of the Buddha, in transport to a place far away. This stupa was built to represent peace.

  • Peaceful and calm. Situated on a hill top, this is a white domed stupa that was built in 1991 by a Japanese Buddhist as a part of the mission known as Peace Pagoda. The stupa has become a tourist attraction not only due to its religious significance but also due to its location which provides panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. I loved the serenity of the place.
  • Fantastic place to be! One can get an amazing view of Leh city from here. The place itself is very peaceful, calm and amazing to be.
