Being inside this huge building in the presence of the huge Buddha and several other immense statues is something that cannot be described. As with several other temples we visited in Kyoto and Nara there is simply no explaining the profound effect of these ancient places.
This is said to be the largest wooden hall in the world and even so it is just one third of its original size. The other two thirds were on the width. It houses a huge statue of Virocana Buddha.
