This was the place where the lord Buddha set in a motion his second wheel of law and preached many inspiring sermons to his disciples. The Buddha Sangha of Japan has constructed a massive modern stupa, the Shanti Stupa (Peace Pagoda), at the top of the hill in commemoration. A bridle path leads to up to the hill but it is recommended to take the Aerial Chair lift which operates every day except Thursday.
