Very impressive historical temple. Lots of figures and architectural models to see inside. Also a good place to get some souvenirs.
A grand great Buddha in Todaiji Temple situated in Nara.. the beautiful place minutes away from Osaka Japan.
Todai-ji Temple is the rock star temple of Nara. It is one of the largest wooden buildings in the world and gets the huge crowds. I visited when it opened at 7:30 and I had the place to myself. Quiet experience to stand beneath the 380 ton, 15-meter tall Giant Buddha. 500 yen entry. Go early and hope the crowds haven't arrived yet.
My favorite temple. There is the biggest wooden Buddha inside the temple. Amazingly big and beautifully built.
This temple is listed as UNESCO world heritage site, it's the worlds largest wooden building and it house "Big Buddha" inside.
This is one of the most impressive buildings in Japan. Photos just don't do it justice because it is insanely MASSIVE when you see it. As the world's oldest wooden building, it is really just cool to visit and be a part of its history. Inside you'll find huge Buddhist statues everywhere, including the famous "Big Buddha", which is largest bronze Vairocana statue in the world. If you're in Nara you certainly can't miss it visit to Todai-ji, it's worth the entry fee.
