Things to know

Tsubosakadera Temple is a Buddhist temple in Nara that is unique because of its Indian-style elements made of white marble, including Buddha statues and reliefs. These were presented to the temple as a gift by India to recognize the temple's international activities in caring for people suffering from leprosy. The temple has a long history that goes all the way back to the 8th century. It was founded by an ascetic who allegedly discovered a statue of a thousand-armed Kannon bodhisattva where the temple now stands. The ascetic thereafter became famous for his healing skills. He is said to have cured the Empress's eye disease. These are the early origins of the temple's efforts to help cure eye diseases and leprosy (Hansen disease).
