I specially liked the journey from the city till Pagoda. Its adjacent to Water Kingdom and a hugely built tomb which has no supporting pillar which itself is a stupendous piece of art. greenery on the outskirts is pleasing and you can hear the screams coming from essel world and water kingdom when you pass long the road.

Dream of Shri Goenka Ji...close to the heart for those who believe in Vipassana! Huge, pillarless prayer hall is an architectural marvel. Vipassana gallery and gardens around worth spending time. Waiting for the project to complete. Suggestion to put directions on the way. Also the toilet facility needs to be improved.

I had undergone a vipassana course 5 years back in Igatpuri and followed that with a visit to Pagoda about an year back . The eexperience is unique and I wish to visit the place again for the calming effect it gives when you spend some time here. Highly recommended.
