Japan : Trip to Kansai, 奈良市 : 大仏殿

In the afternoon we went to visit 大仏殿 the largest wooden building in the world, with inside the world's largest bronze statue of Buddha 大仏. The great Buddha is part of the "Historic Monuments of Ancient Nara", an UNESCO World Heritage Site, together with other temple in Nara. It is 14.98 m high and really impressive. We entered the temple and turned around the statue. There are also other smaller statue in the great hall.
We then continue our walk around in the temple complex before going back to the station for a well deserved dinner before taking the next train to 京都.
