Ah Lane Nga Sint
Ah-Lane-Nga Sint means a five-storeyed tower. which is on the precincts of the pagoda. It denotes the five stages of the ethereal worlds. It's a 10- minute's drive from the airport and the tall tower commands a good view of the surrounding areas. Female members are not allowed to climb up this tower. The construction of the pagoda is modern and the abbot who initiated the project has since passed away. Though it is years. yet the body has not decomposed.
