Create an itinerary including Global Vipassana Pagoda
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.

  • The route to reach Pagoda by ferry boat is very beautiful, we have to take the ride from Gorai creek. After reaching to the other side we have to walk for a short distance to witness the immense beauty of the Global Vipassana Pagoda. The place is very peaceful and the architecture is mesmerizing. Canteen serves decent veg food and the prices are reasonable. P.S: The last boat takes of from the Pagoda at 6 PM so if you are taking return ticket of the ferry then make sure to come back by 6PM. Otherwise you will have to take auto (which charge 100 rupees) to take us to another ferry point and we have to buy new ticket there.
  • A place from where no one would like to return back. Must visit. I went in the morning around 8AM, the morning view of this place is awesome. As the sun rises then it gets more beautiful. Washroom, Parking and Water facilities is available. There is a canteen facility inside. Visitors can also do shopping over there. Wonderful place must visit. (Best mode to visit is either 2 Wheeler or The mode which we opted CYCLING 😍)
