Not often you see a Japanese pagoda around you, so what are you even waiting for. Less crowded and peaceful place. It is well built and if you like quite places with your time and soul drenched into the silence of environs, you'll love this...More

Beautiful structure and very well maintained. Try to go in the morning (as early possible) to avoid traffic jam and crowd, which will help to enjoy the serenity!

This is a beautiful and very peaceful place to visit. Best time is in the morning. Instead of a vehicle do a trek to this place which is invigorating.

Japanese Peace Pagoda is within 30 minits by car from clock tower. In Darjeeling most (city) locations are within 4-5 km range but they take some time in negotiating the contours and curvy roads.
