Yakushiji Temple, Nara
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
See one of Japan's oldest and most storied Buddhist temples at Yakushiji Temple, part of the World Heritage Site of historical monuments in ancient Nara. The Yakushi Nyorai, known as the Medicine Buddha, is the main object of veneration, and represents one of the first Buddhist deities to arrive in the country from China. Established in 680 CE, the temple complex has seen destruction by fires throughout the ages, although its original towering pagoda, completed in 730, remains standing--the object of much admiration for its design and artistry.

Ce que l'on a pu voir était très beau avec notament cette belle pagode. malheureusement le bâtiment principal était empaqueté pour réfection mais heureusement cela a été le seul du voyage....What we saw was beautiful with notably this beautiful pagoda. Unfortunately the main building was packed up for repairs, but fortunately this has been the only one of the trip...show original
近鉄西ノ京駅のすぐ近くにあります。 金堂にある薬師三尊像は素晴らしいの一言。光り輝く姿は誰もが自然と手を合わせたくなるほどです。 また、大講堂の大きさにはびっくりしました。左右41m、奥行き20mもある建物の中には弥勒三尊像が安置されており、左右にある論議台も独特でした。また、後ろ側にはかって信仰の対象とされた仏足石も。 玄奨三蔵院伽藍には平山郁夫画伯の壁画「西方浄土」「バーミアン石窟」「デカン高... read more »Kintetsu Nishi-located near the Kyoto station.

一度も訪れていなかった“薬師寺”。今回、訪れることができた。やはり、奈良の寺院は、京都とは違う荘厳さを感じる。広い敷地の中に、ひときわ目立つ朱色の金堂。その中に薬師如来様を真ん中にして日光菩薩様、月光菩薩様がおられ、訪れた人への眼差しがとても優しく感じた。We hadn't visited even once "Yakushi-JI". This time, you could visit. Still, Temple in Nara, grandeur unlike Kyoto, feel. Red stands out in the Hall. Look them right in the Middle the Yakushi Buddha Avalokiteshvara, sunlight, Moonlight bodhisattva like him, visited people felt very gently.show original
The Yakushi-ji Temple is split into two parts with a small road in between, such is its size. It is made up of quite a number of buildings including pagodas, halls, and an old learning centre. There is debate about exactly when it was built but it was either in the seventh of eighth century. Only one of the buildings – the East Pagoda – is completely original. The others have been reconstructed after being damaged or destroyed by fire. Yakushi-ji is considered to be one of the most famous imperial temples in the whole country.
