Kiyomizu-dera Temple is the main temple of the Kita-Hosso sect of Buddhism. It is said to be originally founded by a buddhist monk named Enchin in the year 778 and built by a warrior named Sakanoue-no-Tamuramaro in the year 798. It consists of around 30 temple buildings and structures located halfway up Mt. Otowayama. The present-day main temple was reconstructed in 1633 by Tokugawa Iemitsu. The well-known “Kiyomizu Stage” which is a national cultural treasure is constructed with a hipped roof thatched with cypress wood in the graceful style of the Heian era palatial architecture, and it is also where the 11-faced, thousand-armed standing statue of Buddhist goddess of mercy Kannon is enshrined.

 

Below the Stage is the Otowa Waterfall as well as the isolated  “Koyasu no tou,” the pagoda tower dedicated for safe childbirth. Aside from these, the temple also houses a lot of national treasures such as the Nio-mon (main entrance of Kiyomizu-dera), Sai-mon (west gate of Kiyomizu-dera), the bell tower, main hall, inner hall, and more. 

 

In December 1994, Kiyomizu-dera Temple has been registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for being a cultural property of old Kyoto City.
