  • Come a little bit away from the city of Nara Temple, and tourists will be launched. People who visit here is Temple right for who want to observe carefully and not too much. The great gate and an important cultural asset to 13 stone pagodas. What is known as the Temple of the cosmos, but have ventured into pristine, with overgrown grass.

  • I asked and want to go is a temple that once visited, but also see the cosmos. This bus from Kintetsu NARA STA., visited in access from the bus stop on the Prajnaparamita. 知remashita is a Buddhist temple located in the residential area is in the thickness of the main gate of the national treasure is hannya-ji Temple here soon. The atmosphere and attitude that the Cosmos are in their full glory to the Chinese and said either that bloom freely or to stem the rocking flowers, had a very smooth impression. Just when in full bloom, and the weather was so colorful, could enjoy the Cosmos are different types. Treasure Tower any weight to look like symbols of the temple is located in the herd of the cosmos is still memorable, is a Buddha carved in the wall of this confirmed for the first time. Also, are placed around the monument and statues inside the temple, which was the case they also enjoy the cosmos. In good time and widely is not there, look around the Cosmos as well as attractions, I spent the time than I thought, but very fulfilling.

  • Shigehira 1180 "0/1180" 12/28 (lunar calendar), Taira no Kiyomori's life was invaded with an army of 40000 NARA. Kiyomori was excited for hate to go out, are issued with evil doers and burn it the Atrium Hall. Strategy and the Heike soldiers surrounded the temple we will while mountain resistance, regardless of each House and Cathedral, front door, back door, and torches from throwing and went. Strong wind it Nanto is enveloped in the hell, take the wheel. Tower's nanaehama great Buddha of Todai-ji Temple, burned, crumble, like being engulfed in flames just hell drawing itself. Fireball to be a Buddha, 丸焼ke his head away from the torso. After all, todaiji Temple, Kofukuji Temple and other major temples, Temple was destroyed and has been burnt away thoroughly. Temple spared damage is very slight. It was not thought in the sense no hannya-ji Temple also burned down, without a trace, ruthless and premeditated crime. 10000 or more monks and civilian was burnt to death. Is the neck of the mountain faringnations gate of the hannya-ji Temple, and then were thrown into the moat of the temple. Shigehira is "Nanto is just revenge of Heike, 朝敵 and and now, down by the 仏敵 of the religion" and abstainers. Now if original Temple temple of treasures, Buddhist statues were gone on this day. Due to high winds or in later years, the siege of Nara protecting shigehira blew that day happens to be, is going to fire and none, or appeared responsible for avoiding accident theory, theory of innocence, a fact problem Nara City burned to the ground, destroyed. Is a direct result of captured more than 60 soldiers and messengers of Qing sheng came just before the talks, beheaded, his head that 晒shimono around the Sarusawa pond. NARA masses that do not tolerate heavy weights and did not fall. Monks sweep complicit in Kiyomori's tale of how primarily gave the hit but was not fulfilled. Kiyomori heat two months after her death. Shigehira captured, just three years later, in the Valley of a defeated and beheaded, and his head was exposed in front of the prajna Temple. 焼亡 rough Temple in the warring States period, during the Meiji Restoration in the great anti-Buddhist persecution waste--Temple cornered brink of death. Take the now dilapidated impression is because of the unfortunate history and this cumulative.
