The world-famous Nara Daibutsu (Big Buddha of Nara),

Recently I had a chance to visit Nara with my family. In Nara, we have the largest wooden building in the world, called Todai-ji and you can view the Great Buddha housed inside Todai-ji temple complex. The Nara Daibutsu is officially called Rushana Buddha and commonly known as “Nara-no-Daibutsu-san” (Big Buddha in Nara) in Japanese. There are a lot to see in the city of Nara and I highly recommend to stop by so that you will be able to see a traditional and ancient part of Nara.
