Shanti Stupa

Tours on Buddhist Meditation Teaching Centers
With an intention to honour the 2500 years of Buddhism and to promote world peace, the Japanese Buddhist organisaton constructed the Shanti Stupa in the year 1985. His Highness, the Dalai Lama himself inaugurated this monument of peace.

The stupa is located at Changspa on a hill top and is an awesome white domed structure. Steep steps lead to the stupa which is surrounded by a platform. The views of the surrounding from here is quiet impressive. Almost the entire Leh valley lays open before you to admire and enjoy. The high and dry deserts provide a striking contrast to the soothing verdant irrigated valley of Leh. The best scenes unwind before you during sun rise and sun set.

Tourists are allowed to visit the stupa between 5 a.m.-9 p.m. There is a tea shop at the top as well to provide tourists with some refreshments.

The capital of the Ladakh division of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, Leh is a real treat for tourists, specially if Buddhism and Buddhist monasteries are what they intend to explore and enjoy. Being such an important tourists destination, it is but quiet obvious that Leh has a number of places to stay as well eat. Every second house in the city of Leh has been converted into a guest house to allow incoming tourists to have a number of options to choose from. Cuisine on offer in the hotel include a wide range, from Tibetan to Europen, Kashmiri and Israeli.
