It's sturdier than it looks

The large porch that suspends Kiyomizu-dera visitors looks pretty old. However, this impressive structure is just part of a beautiful temple that has been around since 780 AD. The architecture is quite young being born in 1633. Take a look if you're in the area and have a drink of sacred water to bring good health.
