Buddhist Pilgrimages in Delhi

The subtlety of Buddhist religion can be felt in the air of Delhi even though the shrines and population of the followers of this faith are comparatively less. Buddhism has its own charm to spread and it can be apparently seen in its fewer places of worship that promise to offer incredible peace of mind. Out of the handful Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Delhi, the Buddhist Monastery of Ladakh Buddhist Vihar in Majnu Ka Tila is the most popular place to visit.  Surrounded by the small Buddhist locality and a famed market, this sacred shrine is thronged heavily by both devotees and tourists alike. As the name suggests, it is a Tibetan style monastery with Lord Buddha as the main deity and incredible wall art.

Other than Ladakh Buddhist Vihar there are some monasteries/temples where the Buddhist devotees can visit including the World Buddhist Centre in East of Kailash that along with offering a place of worship renders accommodation as well. Apart from this, the Buddha Vihar in Bhogal, Kalkaji, and Munirka, and the Buddhist Temple in Central Ridge Reserve Forest, Laxmi Nagar, and Mangolpuri are some of the prominent Buddhist pilgrimage sites found in Delhi.
