Pagoda Ekayana, Tomohon

Moving on to another religion/faith-based tourist attraction in North Sulawesi, we traveled to Tomohon and stopped by at the Ekayana Pagoda. It's located not far from when you enter Tomohon, but you have to ask the locals where it is exactly located. Arriving at the Pagoda, you are greeted by the line of statues decorating, or should I say "guarding" the place with their backs against the Lokon Mountain in the background. Apart from the Pagoda, there's the Kwan Im Shrine (I hope I get this right) and some sort of shrine shaped like a tortoise. I'm very bad with the facts so please share me the information or a bit of history on this pagoda :)
