This book is a collection of massive stone tablets which tell the incredible story of none other than Tipitaka. Each of these stone slabs have small pagodas over it making it all the more majestic. And when these were built back in the 19-century, these writings were filled in with precious golden ink and then decorated with some precious stones too.
