The upper levels appears to be brighter than the lower levels on the outside. It is built by ancient carpenters who have professional infrastructure knowledge. The pagoda is made from interlocking wood, and hence there are no nails to bring the wooden pieces together. Inside the pagoda, there is a spiral staircase leading to the top level and on each of the seven ceilings are carvings and painted animals, flowers, birds and characters. You can also see zigzagged corridors and small chambers on each level of the pagoda.
