  • Very serene and meditative place and environment. This is an oasis in the humdrum of Darjeeling. Go early in the morning for a very quiet experience.  more »
  • Want peace? Be there! Amazingly peaceful monastery. The sound of the prayers will not let you leave the place. I felt a connection with the peaceful souls while praying. Wish I could spend more time here. :)
  • Ah! What to say about that wonderful Japanese temple which located just a 10 minutes drive from the Darjeeling ‘Chowkbazar’ OR Darjeeling town. Just beside the temple, you can this Peace Pagoda which has four avatars of Lord Buddha. When reach to the top of this Pagoda, you can get the lovely panoramic view of Darjeeling. A completely breath taking cinematic landscape view of Kanchenjunga range. This Peace Pagoda was built during the year of 1972 having completely white in color and its tow storied. Whenever I have been into Darjeeling, I must visit to this temple along with this Peace Pagoda as well. Just to get the lovely panoramic view of Darjeeling! And if you get the lovely blue sky, then just imagine how good it would be to see the landscape of Darjeeling from the top.
