Kofukuji Temple

Yet another temple in Nara... Kofukuji has several buildings, including two pagodas, an octagonal hall and some museums.

I also went to the "Treasure Hall" (こふくじこくほかん) which houses a lot of Buddhist art, including yet another HUGE buddha. Ancient buddhist sculptures in every size and with any number of arms filled this small museum.
