The dome is twice the size of the dome of the Gol Gumbaz in Bijapur, which was previously the largest hollow stone monument in the world. The Global Vipassana Pagoda was built out of gratitude to the Buddha, his teaching and the community of monks practising his teaching. It was inaugurated in February 2009, by the then President of India Pratibha Patil.The shape of the pagoda is designed after the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar. Large crystals are used on pagoda’s pinnacle and the spire is covered with real gold, and special Burmese ornamental umbrella on the top. Rest of the Pagoda is gold painted.Inside the pagoda is a hollow space of 6000 meters sq, which serves as a meditation hall. This area accommodates about 8000 disciples who practice the Vipassana meditation. Other than the meditation hall, the Global Vipassana Pagoda consists of a museum, underground parkade, administration building, library, study room, smaller pagodas, and a pagoda dome with the relic of Lord Buddha.
