Nara, temples and deer

The first one is the Daibutsuden, the main building of one of the buddhist temples, the biggest wooden building in the world. Hover for the rest ! Hints : tori and sacred trees = shinto, pagodas (originally, these are tombs) and incense = buddhist.

    Ah, I read about the Todai-ji. Also I saw some of those guardian kings, but not in Japan ๐Ÿ™‚

    I especially like Kasuga Taisha and its tree, and the path with many rocks ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for sharing the pictures ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have you seen any Sika deer?

    So you’re more shintoist than buddhist ๐Ÿ˜€ and you’re welcome, I like brag-…sharing !

    Yes it is ! It looks forlorn but the deer are absolutely everywhere in Nara Park, you just can’t miss them. They even wander in shops and chase grade schoolers around ๐Ÿ™‚
