Sanjusangendo Temple 三十三間堂
Sanjusangendo is the popular name for Rengeo-in, a temple in eastern Kyoto which is famous for its 1001 statues of Kannon, the goddess of mercy. The temple was founded in 1164 and rebuilt a century later after the original structure had been destroyed in a fire.

This is one of the first temples I visited in Kyoto so it will always hold a special place in my heart. Fantastic temple, I love the grounds and the insides of the temple are great. Although when I went there was no photography allowed inside the temple so keep that in mind.
This place made my head spin with the number of detailed statues. you are not allowed to take photos inside
