Byodo-in Buddhist Temple in Uji

The temple’s Phoenix Hall, which looks into the country’s most famous reflecting pond, houses a marvelous statue of Amida Buddha made by Jocho, the most famous sculptor of Buddhist images, who lived during the late Heian Period (XIth century).

No wonder that there are plenty of books about this temple available: http://tinyurl.com/ByodoInTemple
