Attraction details
Owner description: Sedona, Arizona, about halfway between Phoenix and the Grand Canyon, is a must-visit place for spiritual seekers the world over. Since 2004, such visitors have been flocking to Sedona’s Amitabha Stupa. (Some call it Sedona’s newest vortex.) Sitting majestically among the pinion and juniper pines, and surrounded by a landscape of stunning crimson spires, it is a jewel to behold. Visit Sedona’s Amitabha StupaOn any given day, dozens of visitors trek up the short winding trails to the 36 foot Amitabha Stupa and the smaller Tara Stupa for prayer, meditation, healing, and the experience of peace in a sacred place. The Amitabha Stupa is open every day from dawn until dusk and your visit is free of charge. (Of course, donations to support the stupa are gratefully accepted.)

“Best kept secret in Sedona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We came across this from the motel we stayed in West Sedona. We went during sunset and it was just beautiful. The moment you climb up to the Stupa you just feel at peace. The guided posts explained everything about the Stupa. I hope they continue to build upon the area. It is truly a harmonious place with a great view!

Thank you for visiting the Amitabha Stupa and Peace Park and for leaving such a nice review. We don't have any immediate plans for building anything more on the stupa land, just for improving what is already there. We would like to improve the road, beautify the entrance, and make the stupa more accessible for people with disabilities. We are mostly focused on paying down the mortgage, but we will make improvements like these as we can.

“A Sacred Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Sedona is known for its spirituality, but for me there was nothing quite like a morning hike to the the Amitabha Stupa. This Buddhist monument, which represents the path to enlightenment itself, sits on a beautiful piece of property, nestled under Thunder Mountain. Loved the sound of the prayer flags snapping in the wind. All are welcome to visit during daytime hours. Dogs too if they are on a leash. The trails are a bit steep and if it is muddy, you should be prepared with proper footwear. I pray that I can return there again and again. Hope all who read this find peace there too.
