Tondaji Temple Tondaji Temple

Tondaji Temple

Once one of the Seven Great Temples, the Buddhist temple complex of Todai-ji (also called the Eastern Great Temple) is one of Japan's greatest wonders. Located in Nara, the temple is home to the country's largest Buddha statue and the largest bronze Buddha in the world. It is now the Japanese headquarters of the Kegon school of Buddhism. The main hall, the Daibutsuden (Big Buddha Hall) is the largest wooden building in the world, and yet it is only two-thirds of the original temple hall's size after its 1692 reconstruction. The large bronze statue of Buddha (Daibutsu) is 15 meters tall and represents Vairocana. Deer, which are considered sacred by locals, can be seen walking around the temple grounds. The temple is now the Japanese headquarters of the Kegon school of Buddhism, and it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
