These photos are from the Peace Pagoda in Leverett, Massachusetts. A Peace Pagoda is a Buddhist stupa designed to provide a focus for people of all races and creeds, and to help unite them in their search for world peace. This was the first Peace Pagoda to be built in the US and was completed in 1986. This is a very beautiful, peaceful and inspiring place. Check it out if your ever out that way! :)
