Peace by the River



Peace by the River

A glorious thing and a perfect place to visit and relax

Location: Battersea Park, SW11 4NJ

Description: A Peace Pagoda is a Buddhist stupa designed to provide a focus for people of all races and creeds, and to help unite them in their search for world peace.

Most (though not all) have been built under the guidance of Nichidatsu Fujii (1885-1985), a Buddhist monk from Japan and founder of the Nipponzan-Myōhōji Buddhist Order.

The first Peace Pagodas were built as a symbol of peace in the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki where the atomic bombs took the lives of over 150,000 people, almost all of whom were civilian, at the end of World War II.

And so to London and Battersea Park in particular...The 'London Peace Pagoda' was completed in 1985 on the south side of the River Thames in Battersea Park, London.

It's a glorious thing and a perfect place to visit and relax and contemplate life...or indeed throw bread to the ducks!
