Central Dome

As you stand at the very centre of the upper sanctum, please look up to see the majestic dome. 

It is a cantilevered dome rising 10 metres or 30 feet high and stretching 8.5 metres or 28 feet across. It is brimming with tender floral motifs. From its centre, the two-and-a-half tonne keystone descends like a stone chandelier. Encircling it, figures of celestial beings beam down, showering their blessings and benedictions. 

The dome rests on an octagonal bay surrounded by windows allowing natural light to seep in through the stone latticework. 

The segmented dome itself uses no steel whatsoever in its structure. 

When ready, please remain where you are and press next.
