Buddhism Articles. Japan has the kind of unique looking architectural design and that can be seen from most of its buildings, especially the ones that were built during many years ago. Among all of those buildings, you can find one of the best Buddhist temple in Japan named Todaiji Temple. This temple was built many years ago as the temple for the Buddhist. However, if you are taking a closer look to its architectural design, you will not find anything that looks like a temple. It looks like the traditional Japanese castle, like many others. Even so, the main function of this Todaiji Temple is just like many other temples in the world.

Similar like many other temples in the world, this temple also has the main hall where you will find the great Buddha statue there. The main hall of this temple is made of the pure wood and this hall is considered as one of the biggest wooden building that you can find in the world. On the centre of this Buddhist temple, you will be able to find the biggest Buddha statue that is made of bronze. The height of the statue is reaching 15 meters. That is why the Buddha statue on this Todaiji Temple is considered as one of the biggest ones in the world that is made of bronze. For your additional information, the main hall of this temple was reconstructed in around 17th century, but the reconstruction covered only about 60 percents of the whole main hall since the area is very large.

Even though this temple was mainly used as the place to pray all of the Buddhists in Japan, the main function of this temple has been changed a little bit. That is because the government thinks that the temple can be a nice point of interest that you can find in Japan. Because of that reason too, there are some nice additions that are added by the government for this Buddhist temple. One of them is the park where you can find deer running around freely. In some parts of this Todaiji Temple, you will find a lot of deer and you can also feed them if you want, but you need to buy the food first. The price for the food is quite cheap so that you will not need to worry about spending your money to feed the deer that you can find around the area of this Todaiji Temple.

For those who think that there is only one hall that you can find on this Todaiji Temple, then you are wrong. That is because there are some other halls that you can find on this Buddhist temple. Some of them are the Nigatsudu Hall, the Hokkedo Hall, Kaidanin Hall, and also the used Lecture Hall. Even though none of those halls is as big as the main hall, you can make sure that all of those halls have something unique that are worth to seek. Therefore, you might want to visit all of those halls too.
