Horyuji, view 07, Five storied pagoda, exterior, north and west sides

Abstract

This is the northwest corner of the Five-storied Pagoda. It is seen here from the ambulatory, the clositered walk that defines and encloses the compound. (At this point, the north-south ambulatory along the west side of the compound turns east for a short distance, before turning back north. This slight "dog leg" in the cloister walk occurs just south of the sutra repository, which is built into the cloister wall just south of the Kodo. The Kodo is the Lecture Hall, the south-facing building that defines the northern side of the compound. The Belfry, the Sutra Respository, and the Kodo were originally outside of the cloister wall, the original north side of which crossed the compound, east to west, next to the north of the Kondo and the Pagoda. It is worth noting here that the north-south axis of Buddhist temples and compounds is almost inviolable and is based, originally, in the concerns of geomancy, Chinese in origin.)
