A photographer's delight
Located on the banks of the Danube in Vienna’s 2nd district, the Peace Pagoda in Vienna is a Buddhist stupa. It is a symbol of world peace and is one of about 80 peace pagodas in the world. The height of the pagoda is 26 metres. It has a white dome with gold relief and a statue of Buddha. Green lawns surround it. It is an inviting place to linger and relax.
The Peace Pagoda is a popular place to stop and photograph. The modern cityscape contrasts beautifully with it. The pagoda is especially popular at sunrise or sunset, when the light bathes the dome in warm colours. The Danube and the sky in the background can also be photographed very well from this vantage point. For detail shots, the pagoda is also an interesting subject. For example, you can have a look at the reliefs or the Buddha figure.
There is no charge for anyone to visit and photograph the Peace Pagoda. Next to the stupa is a temple run by Japanese monks. This temple is open to the public. Whether you are a believer or not, and wherever you come from, the temple is open to you. It is a place where people can come here for peace and prayer. Or just enjoy the ambience.
For those who would like to experience and capture the flair of the Far East in the city, the Pagoda of Peace in Vienna is a worthwhile destination. It is a place of beauty and tranquility. It is a place of beauty and tranquillity.
