World Heritage: Kofukuji Temple4.4
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.

A must see for history enthusiasts, design enthusiasts and those with an indifferent disposition. The view of the 5 story pagoda from the temple and the view of the temple from the pagoda, make for great picture worthy views.

Once we climbed the slope in front of the campus, we saw some quiet deer. That's an exciting moment. They were so tender, just looked us peacefully.
We entered the central golden hall, then spent some time with deer and left. This temple was the first Buddhist temple we visited in Japan; architectures were more exquisite, different from shrines.
