Sedona, Arizona, about halfway between Phoenix and the Grand Canyon, is a must-visit place for spiritual seekers the world over. Since 2004, such visitors have been flocking to Sedona’s Amitabha Stupa. (Some call it Sedona’s newest vortex.) Sitting majestically among the pinion and juniper pines, and surrounded by a landscape of stunning crimson spires, it is a jewel to behold. Visit Sedona’s Amitabha StupaOn any given day, dozens of visitors trek up the short winding trails to the 36 foot Amitabha Stupa and the smaller Tara Stupa for prayer, meditation, healing, and the experience of peace in a sacred place. The Amitabha Stupa is open every day from dawn until dusk and your visit is free of charge. (Of course, donations to support the stupa are gratefully accepted.)

Take a break from the Sedona usual busy touristy things and clear your mind. You don't have to be Buddhist to enjoy this. All faiths or no faiths welcome! A short walk up the path from the parking lot and you are in a peaceful place.

Loved the beautiful stupa. Peaceful with lots of little areas one can sit at and enjoy the view and the peaceful setting. Close to the old airport and easy to get to if you're in that area.

After I discovered about this place, I really enjoy going here to meditate even though it is a little off the way from the main town in Sedona. I love the feeling of peacefulness and calm at this site, not to mention the view is just absolutely spectacular. I was a little bit ticked-off when I saw people left their... More

Amitabha Stupa & Peace Park was such a pleasant place to visit, sit, relax and meditate. If you're not familiar with Buddhism, no worries, there are plenty of well outlined informational signs to help you understand your visit, and the intention of the stupa and the park itself.

This is such a beautiful, tranquil and sacred space in Sedona. Its perfect for quiet mediations and reflections. Don't overlook the Native American Medicine Wheel tucked off behind the Buddha statue!

One of our favorite places to experience the inner peace and spirituality which is what Sedona is truly about. The stupa itself evokes awe and contemplation. People walk around the stupa, as in the Buddhist tradition, and then sit and meditate. There are places to sit and take in the tranquillity. This is in Thunder mountain, so the hiking trails...

We visited this site with local guide Joseph White Wolf and were very favorably impressed. it is a relatively gentle hike and such a lovely area with chairs for meditation around the shrine. There is also a medicine wheel just beyond the Stupa.

My friend shared this beautiful, peaceful, and unusual experience with me -- and I will never forget it! We drove about 8 miles out of Sedona and through neighborhoods to a gravel parking lot, then hiked a short distance uphill (do not wear heels or slippery shoes!). Half way up we began to see prayer flags and indications of a... More

Clarification: The Amitabha Stupa is right in the heart of West Sedona, not 8 miles out of town. From State Route 89A, the main road through Sedona, turn north on Andante, go almost to the top, and left on Pueblo Drive. The entrance will be on your right. More

We came up here not expecting much. There were lots of paths to wander through, with spectacular views all around. Lots of benches to sit and meditate. The stupa itself was well marked with history, instructions and explanations to enable everyone to benefit, even if you knew nothing about it. I would cone here every day if i could.
