World Peace Temple, Pokhara

(4.5/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
At World Peace Temple, explore the 35 m (115 ft) tall Buddhist pagoda-style monument which symbolizes peace and compassion. Situated on a hilltop at the height of about 1,100 m (3,610 ft), the white temple offers a panoramic view of the lake, valley, and city, as well as the Himalayan range. The monument has two tiers, one for tourists and one for devotees to circumambulate the Buddha statue. Visit the site, which means "peace pagoda," either by crossing the lake by boat, or by going on an adventurous uphill trek. Take extra care of your personal belongings; some instances of theft have been reported. Put World Peace Temple into our Pokhara travel itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This is not only an World heritage site but also a place you must visit to embress the beauty of mountain. If you are adventure lover you will enjoy walking all along the road to reach the pagoda. Fresh air and surrounding natural beauty will blow your mind for sure. Do not miss this site if you are visiting Pokhara, it's not too far.
  • Absolutely beautiful place lying on the top of Pokhara. You will be able to see Pokhara from a great height. Must-go place if you are visiting Pokhara.
  • Lovely place, add the top of mountain, peace and a bit warm, but it may be the time and weather, but a little place to visit with friends are family, and also a beautiful garden. But the only thing annoying was that the statue of Buddha was not of the real Buddha, his face of the statue doesn't depict the real Buddha but the versions of Buddha different people believe, for me no status represented me of Buddha. But they need it that's good but could have been better. Good place.
  • Great views over the surrounding landscape and quite easy access by road. Well worth a visit when staying in Pokhara.
  • Great views of Pokhara. Good for sunrise and sunset. Can get a bit busy. Plenty of places to get food and drinks.
