Horyuji, view 03, Kondo, exterior as seen from southwest

Abstract

The Kondo, the Golden Hall, is the worship hall. It contains an altar and a perimeter walk, around which worshippers would walk in clockwise direction (circumabulate) as they worship. The kondo at Horyuji contains a number of sculptural works, including the Tori masterpiece, the Shaka Triad, cast in 623, as a memorial for Prince Shotoku. -- The kondo at Horyuji was built in the late 7th c., part of the compound built to replace the Wakakusadera compound. -- The kondo reflects very clearly the influences of Korea and China in early Japanese Buddhist art. -- Destroyed by accidental fire in the late 1940's, the kondo was reconstructed exactly with funds raised by popular, nationwide subscription.
