first floor shrine-room is dedicated to our Peerless Teacher, the Buddha
Shakyamuni. On the walls are painted the principal figures of the buddhas
of the three times. Beginning from the right side of the principal figures,
all around on the walls are painted the Jataka Stories based on the
text Wish-fulfilling Tree written by the Dharma King Kshemendra. These
beautiful murals are painted with great attention to detail. On the
pillars are the sixteen great arhats, the seven entrusted with the teachings
and the seventeen panditas of glorious Nalanda.
