Peace Poles-Puri Peace Plaza-Illinois-USA

January-2009

On the Perryville Bike Path at Riverside and McFarland Rockford, Illinois

Peace Poles are hand crafted obelisks erected all over the world and are dedicated as monuments to peace. They serve as a constant reminder to us to visualize and pray for world peace.

The Peace Pole Project launched in 1955 by Masahisa Goi and the Society of Prayer for World Peace, a nondenominational organization, now has over 200,000 Peace Poles planted in over 200 countries.

Each six-sided Peace Pole in the Keeling-Puri Peace Plaza proclaims the peace prayer “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in 12 languages as divided below. The languages are identified below each prayer in English. Our Sister City Garden has a Peace Pole that includes the following languages: Swedish, Italian, Chinese, Ukrainian, Romanian, Hungarian, Kyrgz, and English.
