View At My Window (Post#45) : Kiyomizu-dera Hondo (Main Hall)
Photos of the day are all about Kiyomizu-dera Hondo or Main Hall. The amazing thing to see after reaching the Koyasu Pagoda area is the Hondo or Main Hall of the temple from a distance with a beautiful backdrop of nature. I will not be surprised why lots of visitors wanted to come in this place. It is because of the way the hall was built which is located in the steep cliff and having a large Hinoki Wooden Stage which said to be supported by over 13-meter high pillars. The 18 pillars that supports the main hall was made from over 400-year-old zelkova trees which reconstructed in 1633 and proves to hold the hall of over the years from lots of natural disasters. A truly wonders of traditional Japanese construction. These photos are part of First Kyoto Tour last September 2015.
