Nepal Peace Pagoda
The Nepal Peace Pagoda is located at Brisbane's South Bank Parklands and is one of the most significant heritage items in Brisbane from the hosting of the World Expo '88.
The Pagoda is only one of three Nepal Peace Pagodas outside of Nepal, the other two being in Munich and Osaka. It is also a very close copy of Pashupatinath Temple in Kathmandu, Nepal. It has significant Hindu and Buddhist iconography representing the different avatars of Shiva, Buddhas in different states of meditation, a sacred statue of Avalokiteshvara and the Buddhist deity of compassion. It also features a Peace Bell and a Peace Post with a calling for World Peace in four languages – Japanese, French, Spanish and English.
The centre is not used as a traditional Buddhist or Hindu centre but rather for weddings, private functions and company events with many visitors using the Pagoda's internal first level Church pews for personal meditation.
Behind the Pagoda you will find the Wheel of Brisbane.
