Horyuji, view 05, Kondo, exterior from north

Abstract

The north side of the Kondo at Horyuji, as seen from the northern side of the compound, in front of the Kodo, looking southward. Built as what appears to be two stories (the second story is a false story), on a stone platform, it has a strong upward thrust, which is based on continental models, and is an interesting contrast to later Japanese Buddhist structures (see, e.g., the Kondo at Muroji and that Hoodo at Byodoin). Compare this image with view 03, noting that the Kondo, while having four entrances corresponding to the four directions, is not symmetrical, with the east-west axis being two bays wider that the north-south axis.
