The beautiful and unique setting of the Tibetan Buddhist Center for Universal Peace was the estate of the late Maurice Pate, the first executive director of UNICEF. This pristineestate includes ponds, a small stone bridge, and rolling hills. Lovely simple additions, such as the prayer wheel, add to the peaceful air pervading this estate.
