Yakushiji Temple

Yakushiji Temple

Yakushiji Temple is regarded as one of the oldest and most important temples in Japan, which is no surprise given its impressive status. The temple is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the headquarters of the Hosso Sect of Buddhism, and one of the Seven Great Temples of Nara. Emperor Tenmu founded the temple in 680 and dedicated it to Yakushi Nyorai (the Buddha of Healing) to aid his wife—who later became Empress Jito—in her recovery from an illness. Yakushiji was originally located in Fujiwara-kyo, but later moved to Nara in 718, where it still stands today. Although all of the original temple structures, except the East Pagoda, were lost to fires, the temple’s present-day reconstructions accurately reflect its traditional and grand design. Today, visitors and students of Buddhism flock to the site for spiritual learning, healing, and prayer. In addition to the main temple buildings listed below, Yakushiji is home to Yasumigaoka Hachimangu Shrine, other traditional halls, and Buddhist artwork and artifacts. Do not pass up the opportunity to visit Yakushiji’s distinguished temple grounds and immerse yourself in the sacred and educational atmosphere.

El templo Todaiji, también conocido como el “Gran Templo del Este”, se construyó originalmente en 752 a instancias del emperador Shomu. Es uno de los templos más famosos e históricamente significativos de todo Japón, uno de los lugares emblemáticos de Nara y un sitio del patrimonio mundial de la UNESCO. Hasta hace poco, el salón principal de Todaiji, Daibutsuden, era el edificio de madera más grande del mundo. La enorme estructura alberga una de las estatuas de Buda de bronce fundido (Daibutsu) más grandes de Japón, que tiene 15 metros de altura. Otra atracción popular es un pilar con un agujero a nivel del piso exactamente del tamaño de la fosa nasal de Buda. Aquellos que logren abrirse paso a través de esta apertura supuestamente alcanzarán la iluminación en la próxima vida.
