Seven Story Stone Pagoda

The seven-story pagoda is relatively recent addition to the temple and contains a Sari of the Buddha provided by an Indian monk.  (I can find no information on exactly when it was built.)  It was moved to it present location in the 1980's.  Originally it stood in the upper courtyard where the Chijang Hall stands now. The four corners of the base of the pagoda are guarded by stone sculptures of the four heavenly kings.
