"Kofuku-ji (Five Storey Pagoda)" Kofukuji Temple Tip by kevarms
Kofukuji Temple, Nara: 16 reviews and 32 photos
Located in Nara-koen, the famous Five Storey Pagoda is part of Kofuku-ji, one of Nara's great temples. As well as the pagoda there are a couple of other buildings that are part of the temple complex, both of which go heavy on the Buddha statues. Look out for the bronze Buddha head that is over 1,000 years old which is in great condition considering it was originally stolen from another temple in the early era of Buddhism. Later it's body was destroyed in fire and the head was buried beneath the replacement statue and only uncovered in 1937.
