Phase 2 is the 35-metre high Stupa a structure that has seven levels. Level 1 is a Public Library, level 2 is the Public Museum and Gallery, level 3 is Ancestor veneration place, level 4 is a Buddhist Library, level 5 is a Meditation Hall, Level 6 is where the Patriarch veneration place, and level 7 is the sanctum where Buddha’s relics will be enshrined.
