Sanjusangen-do

The next tourist destination in Japan that can be explored while in Kyoto is the Sanjusagendo Temple which is famous for the presence of 1000 statues in it. This Japanese tourist attraction, which has been built since the 10th century as a tribute to the Bodhisatvva, is one of the preserved cultural heritages in Japan. The temple, designated a National Treasure, is situated in the Higashiyama area of ​​Kyoto, opposite the Kyoto National Museum, and in 1604 was the scene of swordsman Miyamoto Musashi's famous duel with Yoshioka Denshichiro, as depicted in the film Duel at Ichijoji Temple. It is also known for its archery contests. The original temple building was lost in a fire, but reconstructed in 1266. That structure has remained unchanged for 700 years since then with four great renovations during that time. The long temple hall, which is about 120 meters long, is made in the Wayo (Japanese) style. As there are 33 spaces between the columns, the temple came to be called Sanjusangen-do (a hall with 33 spaces between columns). Other objects of note at the temple are the roofed earthen fence and South Gate, which are registered as Important Cultural Properties. They are associated with Regent Toyotomi Hideyoshi and reflect the aesthetics of the 16th century. #tripinspired#ancientlandmark#oldarchitecture#historicculture#naturalwonders#culturalattractions#zoo
