World Peace Pagoda, Vaishali

Home » Destinations » Vaishali » Attractions » World Peace Pagoda

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 symbolises 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 of the apt places 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 and fibre 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.
