Kiyomizudera

One of the most famous temples in Kyoto is Kiyomizudera.

Kiyomizudera was built in the 8th century. Kiyomizudera is a mountain temple. At the time of the capital of Heian-kyō, the construction of temples and new temples in Heiankyo was forbidden, so the Buddhist temple was to seek its place in the mountains. That made unique arrangements and buildings that I can not see elsewhere. It is an ancient amusement park that nearly 40,000 people come every day. It is supported by 139 big struts facing the famous main hall on the stage of Kiyomizudera. Actually this figure has meaning. This is the meaning of this 139 It has been said that odd numbers have been regarded as important in Buddhism because it is not broken by other numbers
