Shrine for Sakymuni Buddha's Sarira is a place aimed to enshrine Buddhist relics. Shrine for Sakymuni Buddha's Sarira refers to a precious palace without any evil passion and vacillation. It indicates Buddha’s state without any greed, anger, stupidity and agony. As Shrine for Sakymuni Buddha's Sarira enshrines Buddhist relics, there is no Buddha’s image in a Buddhist sanctum, only the Buddhist altar is installed. Shrine for Sakymuni Buddha's Sarira towers over at the center of a mountain range dropping from Birobong Peak. As it looks like a dragon playing with a magic stone that bestows omnipotence on him who acquires it, some found it a propitious site for a grave, and it was the object of many people’s adoration.
