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.

One of the statues looked like me, and it left me a little freaked out haha

I just love this place, even though it is skipped by tourists most of the time.
The large number of statues in the main hall is a sight you will not easily forget!

If you want to avoid crowds and see an impressive sight of Kyoto, this is the place to be.

Also, the garden gives you the opportunity to shoot some nice Japanese looking photographs.
