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.)

The Stupa is beautiful and has great energy. I loved the prayers for world peace and the instructions printed clearly so anyone wanting to participate can.

I follow Buddhist teaching so coming here was something I had wanted to do when visiting the area. There's an overwhelming feeling when you're approaching and you see the Tibetan prayer flags. Someone in a previous post said they should be replaced because they are tattered. Google and research the meaning/purpose of them and you will have a greater understanding and appreciation. It was breathtaking because I was alone for a bit and the weather was solum so it set the mood. I had gone purposely for my mother as she has been sick; there is a book you can write your prayers in as well as a box to place donations. You may also leave personal offerings as well.

The history, purpose and construction of the Stupa is very interesting and there are some good information plaques explaining it. There is a nice and peaceful path to walk around. We enjoyed our short visit and learned more about Buddhism. I liked the prayer flags but some new ones need to be put up as many of the flags are worn and tattered almost giving the area a look of neglect. This site is worth a short visit while in Sedona.

Not all might appreciate this spot but it is a spirit filled place and I especially enjoyed the prayer flags. There are several plaques that explain the purpose of its presence. A small covered area will let you sit for a while under the shade.

I found this site while I was searching for something else on Tripadvisor and decided to visit while we were at Sedona. You do not need to be a Buddhist to enjoy this. It is spiritual and full of positive energy. There is also a ring of rock at the right side uphill behind the Buddha statue above the stupa . It is an easy walk.
