Yakushiji Temple

Yakushiji Temple is a temple established by Emperor Tenmu who wished to cure the empress’ illness.It was moved to its present location at the time of the relocation of the ancient capital of Nara. Most of the buildings except the East pagoda were unfortunately lost in fires or earthquakes. Following efforts to raise contributions by selling copies of handwritten Buddhist scriptures, step by step restoration was conducted for the architectural plan of Yakushiji Tempe,which features a temple style with pagodas on the east and west sides of the Kondo Hall.As a result,many highly valuable pieces of Buddhist art designted as National Treasures have been displayed at the reconstructed buildings.
