This place is a regular tourist spot, where tourists visit to click photos. During my visit, it was raining, so couldn't enjoy much.

We saw it from the base..ie from the Japanese temple..too many steps to climb for the Peace Pagoda. But it is very serene and beautiful and a marvellous piece of architecture. For energetics..you must climb and see the Peace Pagoda!

Also known as Japanese temple is a quiet and beautiful place. It has huge statues of Buddha. You can also get a view of Kanchanjunga ranges once you climb up and if the weather is clear.

It's Worth visiting for Peace and Knowledge. Very well maintained. There are only few of it in India. If you are in Darjeeling then don't miss it.

This place teaches the true meaning of "Silence is Golden". Surrounded by a beautiful landscape stands this gorgeous temple.The surrounding is so peaceful and fresh that it gives a new perspective to life and you will want to come here again and again.

Were lucky to be part of the prayer time. Got to sit and play the banjo for some time. Don't forget to collect prasad while leaving. Exit quietly. The peace stupa is a memorable structure with good painting all around. It's a few steps up,...More

A very cool and calm place. We just sat and chanted on drum beats. It was very soothing. Unfortunately, it was raining and could not spend much time but it was an extraordinary experience.

The temple is very quite and peaceful. It is good to chant some words which gives us mental peace. There is some instrument inside the temple which we also can play and pray using the words said by the priest inside. It feels very good.

Japanese Peace Pagoda is within 30 minits by car from clock tower. In Darjeeling most (city) locations are within 4-5 km range but they take some time in negotiating the contours and curvy roads.

Yes, it will be a good time to visit Darjeeling. I visited in May in 2013. It will be cold and you'll get a lot of rain and fog; still, you can enjoy the place. Make sure that you carry an umbrella. It will be peak season... More
