Himeji (Page 2 of 2)

This is the Himeji Pagoda. It is a Buddhist sanctuary. Inside the building are enshrined a portion of Buddha's ashes/remains. I think there are seven locations in the world that have a portion of Buddha's ashes.

This is the inside of the sanctuary. The shrine in the middle of the room contains the remains of Buddha.

This is the shrine up close.

The main statue on the upper portion of the wall is of Buddha. The other statues on the same level are of his great ten followers/disciples.

This is the top of the dome.

Along the base of the inside wall are statues of various Buddhist saints.
