Great East Gate

The stately East Gate connects the temple’s Western and Eastern Precincts. Its origin is unclear, but artifacts discovered during repairs in 1934 show that it was once a gate facing south on the east side of Kagami Pond and was later moved in the Heian period (794–1185) to be a gate that allowed for east-west passage. The East Gate is a remarkable example of Nara period (710–794) architecture, and it is supported by three ridgepoles on both sides and in the center.
