"Buddha in the Great Buddha-Hall" Top 5 Page for this destination Todaiji Temple Tip by globetrott

Todaiji Temple, Nara: 60 reviews and 136 photos

Take a look at my 4th photograph in order to realize the giant size of these Buddha-statues in comparison to somebody standing in front of it on the left of my picture.
This is the largest Buddha-statue made of bronze, it has a weight of 452 tons, a hight of 16 meters and including the basement it is more than 30 meters high.
You will find it inside the biggest wooden building on earth : 57 x 50 meters wide and 50 meters high, it was built in the year 1708.
