Virtual Temple

Welcome to the Virtual Temple here at Asian Religious Studies Online. This temple is an online version of the actual Buddhist temple of Hosshinji near Kyoto, Japan. There are many rooms and pictures of the temple assembled in a format where you can actually walk through the building and see the temple as if you were actually there.

The temple is very graphic intensive, so if you have a slow internet connection, you will be waiting for pictures to download. Just use the buttons on the screen to move around. To get back to the main page, use the button marked "Main" on each page.
