In the main hall of the cave, the stalagmites have formed many shapes.

There is a huge Sakyamuni statue with a big dragon on the Buddha’s crown. Legends have it that Sakyamuni Buddha brought along this dragon to protect the cave. Also there is a bell, if it’s hit by a mallet, it will have a clear ringing sound. Another sacred spot is the “Saint Pool” that the Buddha used to cure patients with various diseases. The level of the holy water is always maintained high regardless of seasons and the temperature of the cave is always maintained at 21°.
