The Peace Bagoda

These are some photographs of the Peace Bagoda, Temple and Medicine Wheel which are in Willen, Milton Keynes that I visited last Friday.
The Medicine Wheel, while inspired by Native American traditions, is meant as a universal symbol of peace and also draws heavily on local energy sites such as Stonehenge.
The Peace Pagoda was built by the the monks and nuns of the Nipponzan Myohoji as a symbol of world brotherhood. Above it, 1,000 cherry trees commemorate the victims of war, while prayers and messages of hope decorate the nearby One World Tree.
Alongside the Pagoda is the distinctive Buddhist Temple, where the public is welcome inside or to visit the grounds with their Japanese and Zen gardens.
If anybody has any ideas about what I could put onto this blog then please let me know.
