Nothing much to see here. There is a monument to world peace. The area is very peaceful, with a Japanese temple and a structure that has Buddha's four avatars. Can pay visit - That's all. Nothing great The toilet nearby is pathetic!

Japanese temple and Peace Pagoda are adjoining buildings. Chanting of lotus sutra on beats of drums was going on in first floor of Japanese temple. A nice and peaceful place. You also don't have to walk too much.

It is a nice quiet place on top of the hill. In the same compound you will find a Buddhist temple along with peace pagoda.
