Byodoin Hoo-do (Phonix Hall) temple, Uji, Kyoto
Byodoin temple was built in 1052. In the following year, Amidado (Amitabha hall) was built, where Amitabha Tathagata is enshrined, and is not called Hoo-do (phoenix hall). It is an elegant and ornate structure, in the image of the Palace in Jodo, depicted in Buddhist scriptures.
The garden has been designated a National Historic site and place of scenic beauty incorporating the Jodo style of "borrowed landscape" or classic Heian period garden.
In addition, in Byodoin temple, many cultural artifacts have been passed down from the Heian period, including the painting of dissent of Amitabha in Yamato-e style, a temple ball, and a pair of phoenix statues.
