Along with Fushimi Inari of Kyoto, this was one of the best religious place in Japan. The walk up to it is magical surrounded by forest, stone lanterns and of course, deer. The temple itself is not very large but worth the entrance fee as inside it is full of ornately decorated metal lanterns and there is a room where you can see them lit up. I also got lucky as a wedding ceremony was taking place so I got a bit of a taste for what that is like. Even though it is a bit far from the park entrance do not miss this if you're in Nara, not only is it worth the walk but the walk is part of the beauty. Very tranquil and relaxing to walk. Well suited to anyone who enjoys photography the area lends itself to the camera with interesting old trees and structures and contrasts.
