Peace Pagoda

Peace Pagoda

A peace pagoda is a Buddhist monument built as a symbol of world peace and is meant to promote unity among all the peoples of the world regardless of race, creed, or border. 

The peace pagoda at Willen Lake was completed in September 1980 and was meant to be the first peace pagoda to be built in the Western world.

Surrounding both the temple and the peace pagoda are 1,000 cedar and cherry trees, planted in remembrance of all victims of all wars. At the top of the hill between the pagoda and the temple stands the One World Tree which has prayers, messages of hope and small ornaments attached to it as memorials for loved ones lost.
