Nice temple complex with a main hall and few pagodas. You can spend up close watching those Buddha statues and the marvelous craftsmanship. Do not just stop visiting the main hall. Pay additional entrance to tour the museum. One attraction is a a three headed Buddha status.

As i walked from Nara Station, i will come to the foot of a flight of steps which leads up to the temple. Although not as impressive as Todaiji Temple, this is still worth a short visit. You can walk through this temple to reach Nara park. That is, you don't have to come back down the steps.

Nice temple. Entrance fee is needed to visit the interior. A walk surrounding is very nice. Shopping street nearby is where you can find snacks and food.

You can see a lot of construction going on in various temples and tourist attractions of japan to prepare for the Tokyo 2020 olympics. After seeing so many temples, one can be numb to the sight yet I still find it a humbling experience. A nice detour to the deer park and not as crowded as the more famous temple nearby
