I visited with friends to check out what exactly place is. After entering place the peace we get was awesome. Entry fee is minimal. We can apply for medication course which is for about 10-12 days. You can have some food from there canteen.

Peace was expected, by meditating under the dome. Unfortunately its "NOT ALLOWED TO MEDITATE" for all public under the dome. No seperate meditation place in open for experimental mediator. No green trees. So Rude. No more views.

Very peaceful and spacious for relaxation. One can enjoy to see the blue sky all around along with pagoda temple. But the destination is very far away from EMU Local station that's why taking much time and money.

Travelled to the site with business associates. Didn’t know what to expect. Took the ferry which in itself was interesting and fun. Arriving at the Pagoda I was immediately impressed with the shear size. Right away as you walked closer you can tell that this...More
