Adjacent to the monastery, this temple dates from 746 but only the great bell (said to be Japan's oldest) remains from the original construction. Its treasure hall has an impressive collection of statuary, most of it wood, dating from the 10th to 12th centuries. Many of the items show Indian or Tibetan influence.
