The giant sitting Buddha image was built in Augut 1905. The height of the image is 72 feet from foot to the head. The compound of the pagoda is 14 acres. The hall was in the iron structure with CGI sheet roof. The pavilion has a nine-tiered roof and hence it is generally referred to as the nine-storey pagoda.

There is a frog and a snake on each side of the entrance to the prayer hall. There was a legend saying the giant frog ate the snake showing victory. As a symbol, theses two statues are kept. There are small shops selling Buddha images made of wood and bronze. There are also some palmist and astrologer.
