main hall of Todaiji temple

This main hall at Todaiji is home of the Daibutsu, the largest bronze Buddha statue in the world. The building is the largest wooden one in the world, almost 160 feet high and 187 feet long. (And this one is only two-thirds the size of the original; it was rebuilt in 1692 after fire destroyed the old one.)
