Gangoji Temple, Nara
Categories: Historic Sites, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Take a look at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Gangoji Temple, a once-sprawling complex of buildings with a main temple that stands out as one of the oldest in the country. Observe its picturesque structure, and notably the tile roofing called "gyokibuki," one of the oldest known examples of the technique of partially overwrapping tapered roof tiles. Generally a peaceful place to visit, the temple is somewhat overshadowed by larger counterparts in the region, making it a good spot to escape the crowds and conpemplate the rich history.
