One major attraction in Sunkhani VDC is the Shanti Dharma Stupa. This is a 15 metre high memorial tower built in the memory of all the lives that were lost in the great earthquake of Nepal that occurred in April,2015. The Stupa was built by a Buddhist religious group called Honmon Butsuryu Shu {HBS}. The Buddhist center adjacent to the Stupa is working on propagation of Buddhist ideas to promote peace, happiness and general social welfare among the population.
