GANGOJI - JAPAN
Gangoji was one of the Seven Great Temples of Nara. It is part of the temple complex that UNESCO has designated as a World Heritage Site. Founded by Soga no Umako, it is among the oldest temples in Japan, having been moved from Asuka to Nara in 718. All that remains of the original building is the Zenshitsu hall at the rear. The Gangoji complex includes three historic sites. The Gokurakubo is a well-preserved structure that is one of those sites.
