Main entrance to Sangam World Center. The three arches over the entrance symbolize the three parts of the Girl Scout or Girl Guide promise in most countries.
Construction of a new exterior wall in front of Sangam. The wall was being moved to accommodate a road expansion project. Between the new and old walls the top of a Buddha statue can be seen. The statue was a gift to Sangam when it opened. IT has been a significant part of the Sangam culture ever since. It is said to be watching over the world center and its visitors from all over the world.
