Words-and-Pictures: Nara's Nannendo

(as seen on October 10th, 2001, on the Yamato stage of the Aki Meguri)

Note: Nara is in the heart of Old Yamato.  The Nannendo is located in central Nara, on the grounds of Kofukuji, which is number 9 of the Saigoku (Kansai) 33 Temples Sacred to Kannon.  You can read about my visit to Nara in my Logbook, read more about my Yamato experiences, or read about the entire Aki Meguri from the beginning.
 
This lovely little rokudo (six-sided hall) is dedicated to Kannon, the Goddess of Mercy.  It is the only temple from the Saigoku circuit located in central Nara.
