Peaceful japanese temple and pagoda. It has a scenic view of city from here. Area is well kept. Might get crowded with vehicles as entry/exit gate is small. Have a decent parking place and one more under construction.

This is mostly outdoor activity. Darjeeling weather is unpredictable. So be prepared. You don’t need more than 30 mins to see the place unless you cannot find parking at the location.

A great proof of Indo-Japanese cultural bond. Offers a great view of Mt. Kanchenjunga. The Buddhist temple inside the same premises is also good to see

Japanese Peace Pagoda is within 30 minits by car from clock tower. In Darjeeling most (city) locations are within 4-5 km range but they take some time in negotiating the contours and curvy roads.
