Find a place of calm at Japanese Peace Pagoda, a monument that promotes world peace and cultural understanding. Japanese Buddhist monk Nichidatsu Fujii laid the foundation stone in 1972, and the completed pagoda reaches to a height of 28.5 m (94 ft) and width of 23 m (75 ft). Though located close to a Buddhist temple and part of a wider Buddhist complex, the purpose of the pagoda has always been to encourage unity between people of different races, creeds, and religions.

  • What a peaceful, serene and cold place. The surrounding is also very charming. The whole environment is peaceful that it kind of make you feel calm, energized with positive vibes. I personally like the place very much. The main Pagoda and the nearby small museum like building with so many spiritual architectures is really good to see. In a single word, JUST AWESOME.
  • An average place located on 10 min distance from main Darjeeling Market.... As the name suggest it is a peaceful place where a Japanese and a Buddhist temple is located.... You can enjoy beautiful view of Mountains from there... Good place for Photography... But don't expect too much....
