Shanti Stupa was built by Japanese Buddhist Monk Bhikshu, Gyomyo Nakamura and part of the Peace Pagoda mission in the year 1991. This stupa is built as a mark of successful completion of 2500 years of Buddhism. This is built to spread world peace and as a symbol of friendship between Japan and Ladakh. The holy relics of Buddha are protected and are enshrined by 14th Dalai Lama at the base of the Shanti Stupa in Ladakh.
