The World Peace Pagoda in Pokhara Nepal is painted a brilliant white and sits atop a hill overlooking the Annapurna Mountain range which reflects off Lake Phewa Tal below. It is thusly one of the more serene peace pagodas in the world. Built just after World War 2 by Buddhist monks from the Japanese Nipponzan Myohoji organization this World Peace Pagoda is one of over 80 world peace pagodas in the world today. They are built to inspire peace for all races & creeds. You can easily visit the World Peace Pagoda in from Lakeside in Pokhara and it’s well worth the trip for the views alone. The World Peace Pagoda in Pokhara offers a lot more than just a Stupa. It’s a lake, a small trek and a mountain view. Add in some side trips and it’s great little outing to do while in Pokhara.
The only reason to visit Peace Pagoda is the most awaited morning sunrise. Along with sunrise, view of Pokhara valley with beautiful clear Fewa Lake. This Peace Pagoda is in the top of the hill so you can clearly view the mesmerizing sunrise.
