  • Meditation halls are designed to protect Monks from outside disturbances with stupas at the centre and guards at the entrance of the hall.

  • The lay out of Kitchen and resting place for Monks are still giving a glimpse of the simple life of them.
  • The direction of Sun rise and sun set are marked in stones. Monks visiting this Buddhist school from far places like China, Burma and other countries came through the sea route and used to stay here for months and year before completing their study. 
  • The complex have number of Stupas, chaityas and viharas. There are many rock cut troughs available here. Out of the 12 tubs used for storing drinking water four are available within the complex and others were little outside the area.
