Small lakes of Nara

Nara is well known for its historical sites like the Todai-ji temple, but the city also offers gorgeous parks to explore. The area around those small lakes was especially enjoyable with the reflection of the bridge and Cherry blossom trees (Sakura) on the water. I could also hardly resist to take photos of newly-weds during their wedding photo-shoot.

Todai-ji (東大寺)

The largest statue of Buddha in the world is located under the roof of Todai-ji temple. The statue measures about 15 metres high and is estimated to weigh about 500 tonnes (500000 kg) . To cover the massive statue, the temple is of large dimension, perhaps one of the most impressive historical site in Nara.
