Nearby Destinations: Horyuji Temple, Nara: 7 reviews and 25 photos
In the Höryuji-temple in Nara you will find some of the oldest wooden buildings on earth, dating back more than 1300 years. A part of this place is still a monastery nowadays, another part is a museum and its main attraction is Gojü-no-Tö, a pagoda with 5 stories, dating back to the 6th century and surrounded by a cloister from all sides. Photography is no problem in Höryuji-temple except for Kondo, (that is the main hall with old statues and some great frescoes), for the interior of the 5-stories-pagoda and for the museum.
