Peace Chapel

The Peace Chapel - The Peace Chapel is an environmental landscape site designed by architect Maya Lin. It occupies a 14-acre site within the 170-acre Baker-Henry Nature Preserve. Located near the Juniata College campus, the Peace Chapel provides a contemplative setting within the rolling hills of central Pennsylvania. Designed and constructed in 1988-1989, the Peace Chapel consists of two sites. The larger site is defined by a 40-foot circle of rough granite stones that line a shallow well at the top of a hill. A series of smoothly polished granite steps lead from the footpath up to the circle of stones. The smaller site occupies the top of a slightly higher neighboring hill. This smaller site consists of a 4-food diameter smooth granite disk set within the forest that blankets the hill. From the disk one can peer through the trees to the distant hill and view the larger circle of stones. Read more about it at http://www.juniata.edu/services/museum/coll_peacechapel.html

I'm glad you always explain your pictures, Sachin. I certainly couldn't have guessed all the significance in this one.

that's an interesting find Sachin, those kind of archaeological sites hold a huge fascination for me, wondering what the people who built them would have been like and how they would have lived..
