It is comprised of a seven-storey pagoda and structures adorned with intricate Chinese octagonal base, Thailand middle tiers craftsmanship and Burmese spiral dome architecture, inspired by religious beliefs and philosophy. Adding to the temple's heavenly beauty is the lush mountainscape that envelopes it.
