  • Very peaceful and calm atmosphere. They were offering prayers when I visited in the morning. It was so peaceful that I stayed there till they finished their prayers. Lovely prayer hall. They offered me and husband sugar Prasad which I appreciate for their gesture. Place with a beautiful view. It was different feeling altogether. They had displayed the chanting which I chant whenever I feel low. Fell in love with this place.
  • The Japanese Buddhist temple is incredibly peaceful and symbolizes peace across the earth. Its beautiful and also historic at the same time. Our time at this place was good but not so awesome because the clouds were completely covering the peace pagoda and it was very cold. Must visit if you are in Darjeeling.
