The Nepalese Pagoda is one of the last bastions of World Expo 1988, and the majestic monument holds great cultural and spiritual significance. In 1986, the United Nations International Year of Peace, the Kingdom of Nepal agreed to participate in World Expo 1988, and the plans for the historical Nepalese Pagoda were set in motion. The Association to Preserve Asian Culture was commissioned by the Australian Government to oversee the creation, operation and relocation of the Pagoda at the conclusion of Expo. Featuring three levels, the handcrafted Pagoda is made from 80 tonnes of indigenous Nepalese timber sourced from the Terai jungle forest of Nepal and is maintained by South Bank Corporation. As one of only three Nepal Peace Pagodas outside Nepal, its cultural importance is paramount. Try your luck by throwing a coin into to the Nepalese Pagoda’s wishing pond, with all donations contributing to the site’s maintenance.
