Also known as Vishwa Shanti Stupa,World Peace Pagoda is truly an unique component of Vaishali tourism. This was constructed by Nipponzan Myohoji sect of Japanese Buddhists .
The stupa symbolizes peace. The admirable Fujii Guruji who dedicated his life for world peace wanted to have peace pagodas all over the world and Vaishali according to him, was one the apt place for establishing a shrine of peace.
It is 125 feet tall stupa with a dome, which has a diameter of 65 feet. The stupa enshrines the relics of Buddha at the base and is home to statues made of glass, fiber polished with gold. The stupa is located near the Coronation Tank and attracts a large number of tourists.
It will always remain symbol of harmony and world peace keeping the principles of Buddha alive.
