Daienji Temple


by Rachel_H

"Army of Buddhist Sculptures"

Five hundred Buddhist statues were carved by an unknown sculptor following the horrific fire of 1772. The skill of the artisan is clearly naive but the effect of the group is quite impressive. The temple building itself, which dates to the 1630s, was also lost during the fire but has since been reconstructed. Admission: Free.
