The Todai-ji Temple or Daibutsuden is the largest wooden building in the world and
houses the Great Buddha.
Also in the temple are the two fierce Niõ Guardians, carved in the 13th
century by the sculptor Unkei. These are considered some of the finest
wooden sculptures in all of Japan.
The grounds also contain the Shosoin Treasure Repository which used to house
Todaiji's priceless collection of art objects.
