Todaiji temple (東大寺)

Todaiji temple (東大寺) at Nara. Very impressive architecture, and beautiful surrounding.


Big Buddha (Daibutsu).


Inside the main hall, there is a pillar with a hole. It is said that those who can squeeze through the opening will be granted enlightenment in their next life.


Deer around Todaiji temple, and more at Nara park.

  1. I went here in 2012! Really beautiful structure, I couldn’t believe how large it was. Thanks for including the picture of the hole in the pillar, I forgot to look for it when I went. Not that I could have fit anyways lol……
