The staircases to the top level of the central tower have 40 narrow steps and go up at a 70 degree angle. We waited in line at the top for 45 minutes to come down this stairway because it is the only one with a handrail, and Jerry has a fear of heights. This central tower represents Mt. Meru, the mythical mountain around which the universe turns, and at 213 feet is about the same height as the tower of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
