This is Sanjusangendo. The Kannon image inside cannot be photographed.

Loved this temple. Very unassuming from the outside but mind blown away from the inside where please note you can't take photos. Its easy to get temple fatigue in Kyoto but this is one of those temples that stands out and is very memorable.

Entrance is ¥600 per person and now it's not crowded at all. Place worth visiting where you can see 1000 Buddha statue with all of them not identical. No photography allowed inside.

It was a little underwhelming for us, but we loved the peaceful gardens and the pop of bright orange from the darker style wood. When we went, no pictures were allowed inside, but the golden statues inside were absolutely stunning. Recommend if you're in the area.
Note: Visited prior to Covid, so things may be different.

The main hall with 1,000 gold-leafed Kannon statues and 28 deities is more impressive than we'd imagined. It's all the more impressive that these intricate sculptures have survived century upon century. Although photography is not allowed within the main hall, there are some nice picture opportunities outside in the garden area.
