Muroji Temple

室生寺

Description

This temple is believed to have been built at the end of the Nara period. Surrounded by Mt. Muro's verdant greenery, this temple complex consists of Kondo Hall, which is built on an incline, a main temple structure built in the tenjiku style, and the country's smallest five-storied pagoda. Numerous national Buddhist treasures are housed here, including the standing statue of Shakanyorai, which is Kondo Hall's principal image. The site is popular as a vault of Buddhist art.
