Peace pole henge
what is it?
Our Peace Pole Henge, consists of a double circle of 204 Peace Poles, one for every country of the world. There are many ancient stones and henges in Dumfries and Galloway, and our Peace Pole Henge is connecting with the ancient spiritual energy of the land to create a focus for future world peace.
Each Peace Pole has ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’ and ‘May Peace be in … (name of country)’ written in English and the language(s) of the country. There is a pole for each of the 193 countries recognised by the United Nations. Plus some unofficially recognised nations and areas of conflict, where the people are in need of peace.
Our Peace Pole Henge is open throughout the year. It is a beautiful space to reflect upon peace in our world and in ourselves.
Our Peace Pole Henge was made by the generous donations of hundreds of people from around the world, in Japan, Australia, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, South Africa, Ireland, Northern Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland.
Infinite Gratitude to you all.
