The East Temple, one of the oldest, was built during the Heian period (s. VIII) in order to protect the old capital. Its pagoda is the tallest wooden buiding in Japan. It's newer than the temple itself as it was rebuilt during the Edo period. Every 21st a market of antiques, art, clothes, pottery and food is held in the gardens of the complex.
