Shanti Stupa – Symbol of Peace and Prosperity

Shanti Stupa situated on hill top of Changspa. Located in the outskirts of the Leh town, the north Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. It was built in 1991 by a Japenese Budhist Monk, Gyomyo Nakamura. The Dalai Lama inaugurated it in 1985. It embodies the powerful chant, Namu Myōhō Renge Kyō (南無妙法蓮華経) (also Nam Myōhō Renge Kyō), which has been written in Roman at several places and is part of the Peace Pagoda mission. The inner architecture is East Asian; exteriors blend classical Central Indian Buddhist architecture as we found many monasteries in Bihar in India. The Stupa has become a tourist attraction not only due to its religious importance but also due to its location which provides beautiful view of the entire Leh Town.
