The Tibetan Peace Garden, Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park
Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park opened in 1934. The land was gifted to the "splendid struggling mothers of Southwark" by Viscount Rothermere in memory of his mother. The Dalai Lama opened the Tibetan Peace Garden in 1999. This is the Language Pillar. It is built of Portland stone and its design is based on the Sho Pillar in front of the Potala Palace in Lhasa. It carries the Dalai Lama's message of peace and harmony in four languages: Tibetan, English, Hindi and Chinese.
