The road up to the peace pagoda is in good condition, motorable. Sometimes, parking may be an issue. The pagoda is well kept, crowded at all times. There are Asokan rock edicts along the way. Must visit. Few refreshments available.

This beautiful monument on top of a hill in white, is a Buddhist shrine very well maintained. As the name sounds, this place is where emperor Ashoka had his transformation from war to peace. It is quite serene and fulfilling to visit this monument.
