Shinyakushiji Temple, Nara
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Visit the site of one of Japan's oldest wooden buildings, Shinyakushiji Temple, founded in 747 AD by Empress Komyo for her ill husband, Emperor Shomu. You'll find yourself in a complex featuring two gates and a hall, which dates back to the 12th or 13th century, as well as Hon-dor, an 8th-century building, which now serves as the main hall of the area. The small structure has white washed walls and a rather slanted roof. Go inside to find a 191.5 cm (75 in) statue of Yakushi Nyori almost filling up the entire room, with his 'twelve heavenly generals' surrounding him. In the past, the generals have featured on the 500 yen stamp. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Nara holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Shinyakushiji Temple and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

破石町バス停から歩いて15分程かかりました。途中案内表示が少なく心配になりましたが何とか辿り着き境内へ。 寺内は薬師寺と比べて非常に狭いのですが、国宝の薬師如来坐像、十二神将立像が本堂に安置されており、是非参拝して欲しいお寺です。It took about 15 minutes, walk from wariishi-Cho bus stop. Way fewer signs became worried that to somehow within the countries. It is a temple is very narrow compared to Yakushi-ji Temple, but Yakushi Nyorai treasure the 12 divine generals statue and enshrined in the main hall, you want to come visit.show original
あこがれの十二神将に会いに行きました。住宅にある小さなお寺ですが、ここの十二神将は、等身大で憤怒のいかめしい表情で薬師如来を守護しています。庫裏だと思うのですが十二神将の彩色の復元作業をビデオで見ることができました。I went to see the 12 divine generals of longing. Is a small temple in the House, but here the 12 divine generals is life-size, is a Yakushi Nyorai patron with a stern face. You could see in the video performing a restore of the coloring of the 12 divine generals think Kuri is.show original
天平時代の代表的な寺でひっそりと建っている様に感じる。中に入ると、塑像だと書いてあったが仏達を守る為周りを12神将が物凄いかおで囲んでいる。I feel like standing quietly in a representative Temple of the Tempyo era. Protect the Buddhas were written into the statues and surrounds in a breakneck 12 divine generals face.show original
