This is serene and beautiful. Really a nice place to visit and spend some time relaxing and enjoy the calm atmosphere around. You will really get the feel of calmness here looking at Buddhas enchanting and doing there chores. Lovely place.

Do visit and stop at the Japanese temple too and hear them chant in an atmosphere drenched in fresh incense fragrance. Go in the afternoon.

Do visit. Its has an awesome view of Himalayas. Do visit 1st floor of Japanese temple and watch the drum. You can also beat the drum along with the priest.

The peace pagoda is good to visit. You can spend around 20 min clicking pics. The architecture is definitely likable.

Visit the Buddhist temple (Japanese temple) and peace pagoda and you will definitely feel an internal peace. Try to visit during prayer hours (4.30 PM to 6 PM) and meditate in traditional Buddhist chants.
