Photograph of Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Japan
Kiyomizu-dera temple is one of the most celebrated temples of Japan. It was founded in 780 and remains associated with the Hosso sect, one of the oldest sects within Japanese Buddhism. In 1994, the temple was added to the list of UNESCO world heritage sites.

Built in 788, the original temple, which today belongs to the Hosso sect, predates Kyoto by six years. Although Kiyomizu-dera honors the popular Kannon, to whom women pray for an easy childbirth, it has become over time a sort of everyman's temple. You will see evidence of this throughout the grounds, from the stacked rows of little Jizo Bosatsu statues to the many komainu, donated by grateful patrons, marking the pathways.

Built atop a precipice,the main hall,which is a National Treasure,is famous as the"Kiyomizu Stage"affording a magnificent view of the city below.The temple precincts contain fifteen buildings designated as Important Cultural Properties, including the inner Temple,Amida Buddha Hall,and the three-tiered pagoda.
