I live close to the biggest Pagoda in Asia that can accommodate a thousand people meditating at a time. It’s not yet ready, but I love the peace of the place. Built on Buddhist principles, the Grand Vipassana Pagoda doesn’t promote any religion. The pagoda is actually three pagodas in one, the dome where people mediate, second is the sealed compartment in the middle that carries the holy ashes and the top which is meant for lighting and maintenance. I will put up more pictures once I visit the place after it is fully ready!
