Todaiji Temple

Friday, 14th July 2006 by

This is Todaiji Temple in Japan, which is reputedly the largest wooden building in the world and houses another very large Buddha (under a roof though - how inconsiderate).

Actually, I could well believe this is indeed the biggest wooden building, as Europe's largest wooden building would probably fit into Todaiji's courtyard.

Thanks to Chris Westbrook who found this for us!
