Canon Papercraft: Architecture/Building Paper Model - The Great Buddha of Todaiji Temple Free DownloadThis Architecture/Building Paper Model is The great buddha in todaiji temple in Japan. Constructed in 752 on the order of Emperor Shomu, Todai-ji Temple's Great Buddha Hall in Nara is the largest wooden structure in the world and houses an immense statue of Rushana Butsu. The Daibutsu Hall contains this 14.84 metre bronze statue of the "Cosmic Buddha" (Mahavairocana), later known as Dainichi Nyorai in Japan's esoteric Buddhism. The Great Buddha (Daibutsu) weighs 500 metric tonnes. In 784, Emperor Kammu moved the capital from Heijo-kyo (Nara) to Nagaoka and then Heian-kyo (Kyoto) to escape the meddlesome influence of the powerful Nara temples on affairs of state. However, Todai-ji Temple had close links with the imperial family and nearby Kofuku-ji was the clan temple of the powerful Fujiwaras, so both continued to exert some influence on the court. Todai-ji was one of the Seven Great Temples of Nara, which flourished before the capital was moved and remained influential for centuries.
