This pagoda is a gift from the only country that knows what atomic attack really is. This peace offering was their answer to the armed race between countries and their obsession to build bigger, badder and more destructive weapons. It's a symbolic gesture from the Buddhist movement in Japan that is building, donating and erecting these peace pagodas worldwide. One right in front of Whitehouse Washington DC would be very nice though.

On the Thames side of Battersea Park the Peace Pagoda was a lot bigger than i had imagined, worth climbing the steps to explorer all sides and view the detail.

Looking across the River Thames from the north side, one of the most prominent landmarks is the Buddhist London Peace Pagoda, standing out against the green leafy background of Battersea Park. Completed in 1985, it is in fact the second Peace Pagoda in the UK, the other being in Milton Keynes, and one of around 80 around the world. So why is it here? The Pagodas around the world are a shrines to peace, gifted by the Venerable Nichidatsu Fuji, founder of the Japanese Buddhist movement Nipponzan Myohuji and constructed by nuns, monks and other followers of the movement. It is a beautiful building with four gilt-bronze statues on its four main faces representing significant stages in Buddha’s life - birth, contemplation leading to enlightenment, teaching and death – and there is a plaque alongside providing further information on each of these. A unique addition to the Park and all the more impressive for being here and not lost in the centre of London.

Located within Battersea park, near to the River Thames. Built around 1985 by a group of monks n Nuns ( from Japan perhaps) in dedication to World peace among humans. Annually in June, they will have some ceremony in remembrance of the WW2 casualties. It is a 2 stairs pagoda like with a statue of Lord Buddha.
