This temple was converted from a Fujiwara villa into a Buddhist temple in 1052. The "Phoenix Hall" (Houou-do), more properly known as the Amida-do, was built in 1053 and is the only original building remaining. The main hall of Byodo-in Temple was built to emulate Buddha's palace in paradise, and the temple is indeed otherworldly. Its graceful lines and warm colors give the building the appearance of a majestic bird spreading its wings. It is popularly known as the "Phoenix Hall," and when seen with its reflection on the large pond in front, it almost appears to be gliding above the earth. This view is one of the most famous scenes in Japan, and is replicated on back of the 10 yen coin. Inside, the temple houses a statue of Amida Buddha, whose face catches the light of the morning sun. Surrounding him are graceful depictions of Boddhisattvas in a variety of poses, playing instruments or reading sutras. There is a lively quality to these smaller statues, which creates a fine contrast to the serenity of Amida. All are said to be the work of the priest and master sculptor, Jocho. source : kyoto.travel ・ ・ ・ ・ 📷 FEATURED ARTIST @strolling_adventures ✨ 🌏 location : Byōdō-in - Kyoto ・ ・ __________________________________ ~ got beautiful Japan picture to share? ~ tag #iscreamjapan for chance to feature 😘 ・ ・ #instagood #ig_japan #jalan_asobi #loves_united_asia #temple #architecture #visiting #instatravel #instago #traditional #ancient #outdoors #wood #tourism #culture #loves_nippon #ig_today #funjapantravel #jepang #instadaily #tasteintravel #uji #byodointemple #japantrip #japantravel #visitjapanau #visitjapan #yourjapan
