Things to know

Todaiji Temple is representative of the temples founded in the Nara period (710-784), and is known for the Great Buddha (Daibutsu) statue. The Great Buddha Hall is one of the world’s largest wooden buildings. Its construction is said to have begun in 747 and was completed in 751. However, it took nearly 40 years to complete Todaiji Temple as a whole. Even after the capital moved to Nagaoka, the temple received warm treatment from successive emperors and boasted prosperity together with the Kofukuji Temple. The Great Buddha Hall was damaged by fire twice during battles, and was repaired in the Kamakura (1185-1333) and Edo (1600-1867) periods respectively.
