Heavenly Center Stone

As the surface of the uppermost terrace of the circular mound is paved with nine concentric rings of stone slabs, the round stone slab in the center is called the heavenly center stone. It is surrounded by 9 stones in the first ring, 18 in the second, up to 81 in the 9th ring, symbolizing the nine heavens. If one speaks standing on the heavenly center stone, one's voice will become particular resonant and sonorous.
