We enjoyed Shanti Stupa more than expected.



It is a massive white structure built on top of a hill by the Japanese in 1983 to promote world peace and prosperity and to commemorate 2500 years of Buddhism.



It is a short drive from Leh, past an army camp and up a steep hill. It has panoramic views across the fields to Leh, the desert and surrounding mountains.



Below the Stupa is a small Japanese temple which has three monks and a caretaker. A short staircase with a large Dhama wheel at the top, leads to the first floor walkway with a painted frieze. There is another staircase to the second floor walkway which has four large painted statues of Bhudda and decorative frieze with smaller pictures of Bhudda.
