The entrance to the New England Peace Pagoda complex off Cave Hill Road in Leverett. The sign on the left is for a Cambodian
temple also on the property. (All photos taken Christmas, 2007, Mark E. Rondeau)
The New England Peace Pagoda bears striking similaries and striking differences from the Grafton Peace Pagoda.
An obelisk between the pagoda and the temple — very similar to the obelisk in Grafton.

The Cambodian temple on the grounds of the New England Peace Pagoda. I made my way over a very icy parking lot to this
temple, thinking it was the one for Nipponzan Myohoji order that builds peace pagodas and marches and fasts for peace. Inside,
I got a nice welcome and learned that the two elderly gentlemen, young woman, and two monks present were Cambodians. However,
it was not until later that I learned that this isn't the Nipponzan Myohoji temple. So I'm still not sure where on
the grounds it is located.
