This beautiful pagoda, a gift from the Japanese-Buddhist nuns and monks of the Nipponzan Myohoji Order to the city of London, was erected in 1985 at the Battersea Park. Peace Pagoda, as the name suggests, is indeed a symbol of harmony and tolerance of all world religions; it also commemorates the victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. With a gilded Buddha on each side of the structure, it offers scenic views of the Thames River that flows nearby. The peaceful atmosphere and silence that surround the monument are a good enough reason to visit it.
