All reviews shanti stupa light and sound show daya river kalinga war peace loving demanding money steps leading nice place to relax king ashoka dont forget site seeing must visit place historic place historical significance rock edicts bhubaneswar city hill top
We went there not expecting much, so this was OK. Did see the Daya river from the top. There was a light and sound show on the stupa but we didn't wait for it. The stupa itself was very poorly made, very tacky for such...More
It is built by Japanese, at the place where kalinga war was held and this blood bath converted ashoka into Buddhism. It is a beautiful structure and has Buddha statues. Located on hillock it is close to Ashoka pillar and rock eddict
The Stupa seems a modern construction with Japan's support, with stories outlined on the outer walls. Overlooks the venue of Kalinga war. Meant to be a serene place for calm and peace, the place was filled with screaming tourists.
It is the same place which turns a king of cruelty to king of kindness..The royal hand which is used to kill enemy for victory suddenly changed to a hand to help others, a hand to spread love and peace...Hope we all can change our...More

Well, certainly the car will go to the base of Shanti stupa. There are two ways to go their. If from main road after toll booth you take a right you will reach to the Stupa directly and then there will be a 20-25 staircase to Budhha.
If you don't take a right and go straight you will be crossing through "Ashok Stambh", "Rock Addicts Garden" & a mandir just before stupa. So by this way you will have more to see. But longer way to reach Stupa.
Won't misguide you but yes, there will be considerable stair climbing and walking. Not that extreme too though. My grandfather is 75. He completed the visit in handsome way. And i bet those older bones will be thrilled with the air waves flowing through their head reaching at stupa.
:) Hope you have a nice visit
