Kiyomizu-dera Temple

Kiyomizu-dera Temple Kiyomizu-dera Temple

Kiyomizu-dera Temple is perhaps the most popular temple in Kyoto and retains a special place in the minds of Japanese people. The temple’s most distinctive feature is the large veranda which juts out from the side of the mountain, supported by 13m high wooden pillars. With sunset views looking out across the city, the temple has garnered romantic associations.

The main hall houses a priceless statue of Kannon Bodhisattva, goddess of mercy, and several other buildings designated as ‘national treasures’ are spread around the grounds. The numerous streams and waterfalls are said to have therapeutic properties, and drinking from each one is said to improve health, longevity and academic success.
