This temple was founded in 710, the same time the capital of Nara was established. The temple is famous for its 50m-high five-story pagoda, the country's second tallest following that of Toji Temple in Kyoto. In the precincts is recently renovated National Treasure Museum that display the temple's Buddhist art collection. A three-faced, six-armed statue of Ashura is very imposing. This is the nearest sight from Nara stations.

Beautiful and full of history. Great place to know about the changing times in Japan history.

The two small museums here housed the single best collection of Buddhist sculpture I've seen in the country, and by a large margin. Jaw dropping.

Mist come visit temple if you are in Nara Prefecture. The sight is so beautiful with deers wandering around.

When I visited there 19th September 2018, main temple was under construction. 10 years ago, it was a very good temple. I want to remember this place as I saw in 2008.

Amazing ancient Japanese pagoda. Less crowded than Todaiji temple.

I don't remember how many times I visited this place. I really love this area and I can walk as if I walk in my garden. I will take you to a hidden path, where you would see yourself that you don't know . While walking in the path, chatting is prohibited. You would be alone to face real you.
