discovering the world one step at a time.

Todaiji Temple @ Nara.

I went to this famous temple in Nara, you can even call this place the landmark of Nara (in addition to the hundreds of w-i-l-d deer around the area). I will post about those in another post!

I was about to walk to the temple when suddenly it started to rain heavily. So everyone else including me got stuck in the entrance waiting for the rain to pass by and fortunately enough, it did pass by and below was the shot when those rain clouds start to go away! 

Hopefully you guys also realise just how massive this temple was and this was not even the original size! 

This was the very first entrance.

This was the second entrance to the temple and was taken just minutes before the rain started to pour.

What you see here is one of the many gigantic pillars that support the entire temple itself. As you can see, there is a hole for you to crawl through it albeit it only suited for people with smaller build. From what I hear if you go through it, you will get good luck from it! 

ps - on a creepier thought, what if it collapse when you are crawling through it? Woops eh? Hahahaha.
