It also has a small chapel with simply designed and airy interior; meditation garden; rosary garden; a long bricked aisle with flowering plants and sculptures called The Garden of Saints; a forest downhill where fruit bearing trees and animals like monkeys can be found; a koi pond; fountains; picnic huts and retreat house.
