About Dhaulgiri Shanti Stupa

Known for its epic architecture and attractions like the Ashoka edicts, Peace Pagoda, Shiva temple and Bhaskareshwar Temple, the Dhauli Giri Shanti Stupa in Bhubaneshwar is a place of devotion and worship. It is one of the major religious places for Buddhists who come here to offer their prayers to Lord Buddha. The stupa is beautifully built and has a mushroom-like structure as its done. Its ‘speaking’ stone panels are a great attraction for the visitors. The main stone panels are adorned by the reclining Buddha, the Bodhi tree, an elephant procession, and footprints of Buddha bearing the ‘chakra’. Some other eye-catching imagery of this stupa is the sleeping beauty fanned by female attendants, Emperor Ashoka renouncing war by offering his sword to Lord Buddha at Dhauli Giri and a procession on horseback. Besides these, ancient sculptures like the Saddharma Vihar Monastery are also found at the site.
