Within the oil palm groove, outstretch a series of tutorial/activity rooms which are convertible to meditation spaces unified by a vast umbrella roof. These independently free standing rooms forms webs of open paths and corridors which are permeated by breezes from all directions, not to mention some prevailing rain too. With a huge roof overhang, these challenges from nature are minimized. The Shrine Hall sits on a perched mount at the centre giving focus and prominence to the whole groove where the Dhamma prevails.
