This stupa was built by a Japanese who harboured the ambition of spreading Buddhism across the world, in 1985 with aid from the Japanese Government. It is located at Changspa, on the hilltop, and was inaugurated by Dalai Lama. Its state of the art work attracts a lot of tourists to Ladakh and is spectacular to watch. The stupa is linked with motorable road and a steep flight of stairs. Once on top, you can relax and enjoy the panoramic view of the chain of mountains and the peaceful little village of Changspa with typical Ladakhi houses built along a gushing stream, and Namgyal Tsemo in the distance.
