Shanti Stupa Reviews
I visited the Shanti Stupa in time for sunset, but found it too overcast to enjoy a sunset view. However, the views of the surrounding area, all listed with signs, did not disappoint. more »

The Shanti Stupa is very calm and refreshing. It doesn't need a lot of climbing, making it easy for any age-groups to see it. It is situated in a very picturesque location. If you are a photo freak, you will find amazing backdrop for all your pictures. Just sit on the benches and admire the beauty of the nature. Happy refreshing!
The whole place has peace written all over it... beautifully constructed and well maintained. Instead going there by car one should definitely try to climb through stairs and enjoy beautiful city view in back drop.
