The five central prasats (towers) represent the five peaks of Mt. Meru - a holy peak some 750,000km high on the mythical continent Jambudvipa. Atop the mountain sits the home of Brahma and other gods of both Hindi and Buddhist religions. The massive central prasat is 138ft (42m) high while the four corner prasats are of similar design but smaller.
