Koryu-ji Temple, Kyoto
Categories: Historic Sites, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Marvel at the iconic wooden statue of Buddha’s successor, a contemplative wooden bodhisattva seated in a half-lotus position, at Koryu-ji Temple, the oldest temple in Kyoto. Boasting one of the finest collections of Buddhist wooden sculptures, this early 7th-century temple displays the figures in dimmed lighting, creating a calm, serene atmosphere. Sparsely crowded and off-the-beaten track, the temple provides plenty of benches to sit and contemplate. However, other than sculptures that you can't photograph, the temple offers little else to see and sits relatively far from downtown Kyoto, so consider your trip accordingly.

Мы попали в храм Корюдзи во время дождя. На территории не было никого. Все вокруг дышало умиротворением. Можно было спокойно погрузиться в созерцание прекрасных зданий и сада.We got to the Temple of Korûdzi in the rain. There was no one on site. All around breathed pacification. You can safely dive into contemplation of the beautiful buildings and gardens.show original
教科書にも載るような素晴らしい仏像が30体以上に陳列されており、素晴らしいの一言。激しい雨の日に行きましたので、参観者も少なくゆっくりと拝観することができ、一つ一つの仏像をじっくりと拝見することができました。 もともとありがたく拝む仏像なので、よく見ることは考えてないのだとは思いますが、場内があまりにも暗く、仏様の細かい表情を読み取ることができませんでした。ある仏像は、片目を開いてじっと見ています... read more »Great Buddha appear textbooks that are on display for more than 30 body, great comment. We have to at least see visitors also went on the day of rain, so slowly and carefully to see the Buddha every single. Think not think originally grateful worship Buddha, so look for that area too dark, Buddha ' of couldn't read fine facial expressions. It is open what a Buddha is open one eye, staring at another turning blind eye did not seem so. Penlight said, have quietly (written and is of course prohibited) at the moment. Bicycle isn't nothing disappears in the dark, even though it is very cruel. If you have a medium to ticket parking Uncle gave me time to buy a ticket of admission parking is something else, but it is free. Congestion cannot be reported because it was a large parking lot on weekdays in the heavy rain not only a few did so.show original
国宝第一号の弥勒菩薩はもちろん素敵でした。603年建立で、山城最古のお寺 何度か火災にあっているとのことで、創建当時の建物がないのは残念ですが、仏像は現存しているのは、火災時に仏像をまずお助けしたのだな、と反対に思いました。 仏像は、霊峰殿という建物に一堂に集められ、光量を落とした室内で拝観します。 20mを越すしんちの「十二面千手観音立像」もお気に入りになりましたNational Treasure No. 1 of Maitreya bodhisattva is of course nice. To the contrary, it is regrettable, not time of Foundation and erected in 603, yamashiro's oldest Buddhist temple several times to fire, but Buddha have survived the fire at Buddha first helped him to thought. Buddha is in the sacred Mt., gathered together, visit indoors over the amount of light. more than 20 m crispy's "twelve faces multiarmed deity statue" are favorites to nowshow original
I know there're many 'Unknown temples' which has really nice garden and musiam all over the world. Koru-ji is one of the temples in Kyoto. It has many famous statues there like Hanka Shiyui Zou which is so famous that everyone knows it in History textbook. I really like this place. As my personal opinion, it's highly recomendable.
Nobu Wat' National treasure No. 1 "Maitreya Statue is on the books. It is very interesting and compare with the bodhisattva Maitreya chugu-ji Temple of Nara. That does not compare with the next... ^ ^; Without the lighting a little dark eyes is so crowded and relaxing can be seen. Look at the bodhisattva Maitreya in front and really be healed. It is religion, not be healed of Buddhist art. Parking is front of Ukyo police did little after Qin Hirotaka Temple Station (in front of the gate). So spread the word, okay. Of course the train station is at the gate. You can use IC (icon, watermelon) train.show original
鈴木忍I first saw Maitreya, great fantastic. Forget about time in the serene beauty and amazement. From the kōryū-ji Temple is the front of the Qin Hirotaka Temple Station on the randen, in the moment, feeling the air felt good. Is a place very calm and very nice garden, is not flashy.show original
千住裕也Visit a few years ago. Feel much like healing and salvation would have seen I think that maybe the bodhisattva Maitreya seems to cry, now want to look at many, many times drawn. I thought great Buddhist mind and body both in good health was like that. Or how I feel right now I would love to see it again.show original
