What travelers say:

A sacred temple in Kyoto, Japan, was built in 1234CE and founded by the Horan Shrine. It is the largest temple in Kyoto and the head Temple of the Pure Land sect. Founded by the disciples of Horan, the main hall can accommodate more than 3,000 people, the largest gate in Japan, and Japan's largest clock, weighing 74 tons, 17 monks need to work hard to ring it. It is a treasure of the seven great surprises such as the 'puffle' which draws the gate book "drawing a bird" and the floor where the sound of the sound is made on the top, and the house of knowledge is widely known.
