Take some time out of your busy travel itinerary to slow down and reflect at Global Vipassana Pagoda, a meditation hall topped with an impressive spire covered in real gold. Even if you do not meditate, the grand architecture of this attraction alone warrants a visit. Look for a large crystal on the pinnacle, which covers the world's largest stone dome built without supporting pillars. When you go, also look for a pagoda dome containing Buddha relics, library and study rooms, and a museum dedicated to the life of the Buddha. The complex also offers meditation courses. Check the attraction's website beforehand, as visitors are only allowed to enter during strict periods.

So definitely add to the peaceful mind when you see your surrounding clean. Must visit . Entry free Timing : 9 am to 6.30
  • A peaceful place to be at, far from city noise best time to visit is winter and rainy season. Get away from your daily routine of hectic life schedule and find peace for your mind this is much more needed then our daily work targets. 10 mins meditation in a peaceful place will make your mind more active and focused do it at this place, make it a point that you visit this place at least twice a year. Trust me it helps after all we need a better and peaceful life.
  • Serene place. Can visit with full family. Should take ferry till EsselWorld for a different experience. It costs 50 Rs for return trip. From the jetty where ferry drops it is walkable distance. Also there is car shuttle service for 10 Rs till the Pagoda. Food service is good.
  • A mesmerizing place to please your eyes and mind. If you are interested in meditation, then there are people who guide you to meditate there for 10 minutes. The whole pagoda stands without any pillars. There is a park also for small kids to enjoy. At the end they have an art gallery and they also provide a video session which explains everything about the pagoda. Before the exit there is a store where you can shop for pagoda merchandise like t-shirts, keychains paintings etc. On the left side of the exit there is a food court.
