Todai-ji

The largest wooden structure on earth housing one of the largest bronze Buddahs.  I can't even begin to describe how impressively huge this is.  And, its only 1/3 the size of the original building.  It is truly amazing what people will do in the name of religion.  Of course there were politics involved too, but its comforting to think that such beauty and engineering can be inspired by religion as well as death and destruction.
