Welcome dear travel fans! I've been traveling around the world for 20 years and most of my trips were to Asia. I think I have been crazy about Japan since I was a child and will be happy to share this passion with you.

Additional information

The temple was originally built in 752 under the order of Emperor Shomu as the head temple of all provincial Buddhist temples in Japan. The current main hall, known as the Daibutsuden or “Big Buddha Hall,” was rebuilt in the 18th century after the original structure was destroyed in a fire. The Daibutsuden is one of the largest wooden buildings in the world, and houses the 15-meter-tall bronze Buddha statue, which weighs over 500 tons.

In addition to the Daibutsuden, the Todai-ji complex includes a number of other important buildings and structures, including the Nandaimon Gate, the temple’s main entrance gate, and the Hokkedo, a smaller hall that houses a collection of important Buddhist artifacts.

Todai-ji Temple is also home to a large population of deer, which roam freely in the surrounding Nara Park and are considered to be sacred messengers in Japanese culture. The park and temple complex are popular tourist destinations, attracting millions of visitors each year.
