Well worth a walk to either in the morning or afternoon. Once you have seen the Pagoda go into the Japanese temple and join with the chanting and beating drums. Sit and meditate it is very calming and relaxing.

It's Peace temple, dedicated to world peace. A very calm and quite place with a pagoda and a temple, where daily prayer is held in the morning. As a visitor one can take part in the prayer and chant the peace prayer. The main pagoda with idols of Buddha is god, though personally I do not find the statues aesthetically of great value. There are also murals on life stories of Buddha.
One should surely enjoy the visit.

Though the place is on a hill top and may be a bit tiring but its worth to take that pain. The budha statue is amazing and soothing. Different phases of Buddha's life are beautifully depicted by statues.

The entry to this site is like entering a temple where you should remove ur shoes. It is also known as Japness peace pagoda. Its beautiful site with many buddha statues. One has to climb few steps to see all these statue. It has a charm of its own
