This Pagoda has been dedicated to Gautama Buddha and the community of monks who propagate his philosophy of peace and love. It has been built in Burmese style which is symbolism for gratitude towards Myanmar, which has preserved the Vipassana culture and practices till date.
The architects have constructed this meditation hall imitating the Shwedagon Pagoda located in Yangon, at Myanmar. A very notable feature in the construction style of this monument is the efficient blending of ancient as well as modern Indian technology, which has laid its foundations strong enough to last for a thousand years.
I was awestruck to discover that this mega structure is built without any pillars for support. This structure is twice the size of the Gol Gumbaz Dome located in Bijapur. The dome is approximately 29 meters high which makes the whole building to appear to reach the sky at a height of 96.12 meters.
