Bishwa Shanti Stupa (World Peace Pagoda), Lumbini, Nepal

If you are bored of crowds and are searching peace then the place you deserve is Bishwa Shanti Stupa (World peace Pagoda). Situated at the birth place of Lord Buddha, this is a place that is free from pollution.
All most all peace pagodas built since World War II have been built under the guidance of Nichidatsu Fujii (1885–1985) who is a Buddhist monk from Japan and founder of the Nipponzan-Myōhōji Buddhist Order. He was greatly inspired by his meeting with Mahatma Gandhi in 1931 and decided to devote his life to promoting non-violence. In 1947, he began constructing Peace Pagodas as shrines to World peace.
Where the World Peace Pagoda is: There is another World Peace Pagoda in Kaski that I am not talking about (no doubt it has its own charm). Here, I want to take you is to the World Peace Pagoda that is at Lumbini (that lies in Western Development reason, 22 km west from Bhairahawa City)
