Japanese Temple

The Japanese temple has typically Japanese aesthetics, with a double storey pagoda and a sloping roof curving up at the eaves. It is located near the main market in Sarnath very close to the government-run tourist bungalow. Run by the Dharmachakra Indo-Japan Buddhist Cultural Society the place offers tranquility, peace and calm to all visitors. Original known as Nichigai Suzan Horinji Temple it is commonly referred to as 'Japanese Temple'. The architecture of the temple is reminiscent of the renowned Japanese temples in Kyoto, Japan. Just before the main temple, on the right hand side is a statue of Lord Buddha in a calm pose beneath a tree. On the left side can be seen a pillar with Japanese inscriptions. The sense of calm inside the temple appeals to one and all. Inside the temple is a huge wooden statue of Lord Buddha in a reclining posture with an exquisite design on the head. The Buddhist mantra of ‘Na Mu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo’ is inscribed close to the main statue. It must be pointed out here that the aroma of sandalwood permeates everywhere and is an added charm as all the small statues and other wooden furniture here is made out of sandalwood. Not without reason this is a perfect place for meditation and calm. Japanese tourists hold this place in high regard and are often seen paying their respects with intense devotion.
