Walked here from Darjeeling centre it's an easy walk nothing strenuous at all! The place is really chilled and we were also invited to sit down and play drums which was cool!

The Japanese Peace Pagoda was really beautiful and historical place. It has views from every side when you get on the top of it. I loved the colorful flowers all around it!

We walked to the Japanese Peace Pagoda from Darjeeling - it's just south of the town. It's a lovely peaceful place, where the resident monks invited us in to watch a prayer session... and then invited us to join the rythmic drumming required for the chanting. It was fascinating and stimulating. The pagoda monument outside the small monastery is attractive... More

I love both the natural & architectural beauty of the Japanese Peace pagoda, the pagoda is located on a beautiful place and surrounded by beautiful pine tree, the view from the top of the pagoda is simply mind blowing and will give you a cool pace feeling.

He laid the foundation stone of this Pagoda on 3rd November, 1972. This typical Japanese style monastery is designed by Dr. M. Okha, It is 28.5 m high and 23 m in diameter. It... More

Japanese Peace Pagoda is a nice peaceful place with religious atmosphere. Beautiful white colored typical Japanese style Pagoda is surrounded by tall green trees. The exterior walls are carved with gold polished statues of different stages of life of Gautam Buddha. There is a Buddhist temple just beside the Pagoda. The views of snow-white Kanchenjunga and Darjeeling town is simply... More

This place is beautiful. I walked from where I was staying at The Dekeling Resort in the upper reaches of Darjeeling( much quieter than the crazy car horn clamor closer to town- kind of like Darjeeling Heights!) The walk from Chowrasta Mall to The Pagoda would probably take half an hour to forty five minutes or so but you could... More

The two adjoining structures, the japanese temple and the peace pagoda is a good attraction spot a little far from the main town. You take a car and drive to this place where the driver would drop you outside at the main entrance wherefrom its a 10mins walk to the temple. The temple and the pagoda are adjacent and worth...

Its a nice place peaceful place to visit in Darjeeling not that far from main city. If possible spend a couple of minutes in the prayer there (if its in progress there, in the first building you see when you enter there - in the first floor). From the pagoda you have a nice view of Kangchenjunga, mountains and valleys... More
