Vishwa Shant Stupa, New delhi

Whenever I drive past the many monuments  in Delhi, History floods  me, I long to spend a month or so, exploring the many unexplored monuments lying in almost the entire Delhi, research them, Photograph them. I hope to do this some time, at least in parts.

The Vishwa Shanti Stupa is the latest addition to the monument of Delhi. Located on the ring road on the way to Noida on a huge plot of land, the Viswa Shanti Stupa was inaugurated in the presence of the Dalai Lama in 2007 and house the relic of the Sakya Muni.



I have seen similar Stupa in Darjeeling and my research of Ladhak shows one in Leh too.  The landscaping of the  sprawling grounds is yet to be completed,  the adjacent millennium park with eateries around should make a good picnic place in the evenings.

I don't like the concrete structures. Stone structures have a special charm. This looks good, hope it lasts long.

Wonderful. I have seen similar stupa at Dahuli in Orissa. It is much older.

Venerable Nichidatsu Fujii, the founding preceptor of 'Nippozan Myohoji' met Gandhiji in 1933 at Wardha and became his life-long admirer. Gandhiji, too, impressed by his infinite clarity of purpose and dedication to peace, named him Fujii Guruji. In 1983, Fujii Guruji expressed his wish to build a Vishwa Shanti Stupa at Wardha. In 1993, the President of India, Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma inuagurated the Stupa. Read more facts about the Vishwa Shanti Stupa at Wardha, on the Jamnalal Bajaj Foundation website.
