Darjeeling, known as the "Queen of the Hills," enchants with its breathtaking landscapes and cultural charm. Beyond the emerald tea gardens, vibrant markets, and panoramic views of Kanchenjunga, Darjeeling's colonial architecture and Tibetan influences add a distinctive allure. Around 28m high, perched on a hillside, 2km south of the town center, is the glistening white, Japanese Peace Pagoda one of more than 70 pagodas built around the world by the Japanese Buddhist Nipponzan Myohoji organization. A haven for those seeking tranquility amidst nature's grandeur, this Japanese temple is a must-visit.
