Great Buddha of Kamakura Kotoku-in

Great Buddha of Kamakura Kotoku-in

Kamakura

This is a temple of the Jodo sect of Buddhism, and its principal object of worship is the bronze statue of the seated Amida Nyorai, which is a national treasure. The statue, known as the "Great Buddha Seated in the Open Air," is not as large as the statue at Todaiji Temple in Nara, although it still retains almost all of its original appearance and is of great value in the history of Buddhist art in Japan.
