Vishwa Shanti Stupa

The Vishwa Shanti Stupa is a monument to the birth of a nation, the Republic of India.

in 1956, India's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, during the 2500th Buddha Nirvana called Buddhists from all over the world. He climbed the Grihadkut Hill. Saddened by the neglected state of the holy site, he requested Japanese saint Fuji Guruji to build a stupa in true Buddhist tradition as a mark of respect to the holy seat of learning. The facing peak of Ratnagiri was chosen as the stupa site. Renowned artist Upendra Maharathi designed its architecture. The foundation stone of the 160-ft-tall stupa was laid by president S Radhakrishnan in 1965 and it was inaugurated by president V V Giri in 1969. The stupa can be reached by a 2200-ft-long ropeway, which was presented to the Bihar government by Fuji Guruji.
