Additional Information

Introduction

Located in Wujo-cho, Nara, Tangzhao Temple is a temple founded by the Tang Dynasty Gaochun Jianzhen. Today, it still has a strong Tang style. Among them, Jintang and the lecture hall are 8th-century wooden buildings, which are extremely precious. The monk of Jianzhen accepted the invitation of Emperor Shengwu and came to Japan to innovate Japanese Buddhism, but after suffering a lot of hardships, it took 12 years to finally arrive in Nara. In order to thank the Tang Dynasty monks, in 759 AD, the Japanese established the Tangzhao Temple with the foundation of the 7th Emperor of Emperor Tianwu.
