10 Most Famous Temples in Asia

1. Kinkaku-ji 5.0 

The Golden Pavilion, Kinkaku-ji was constructed as a retirement villa in 1397 for one of the well-known shoguns of Japan. His son transformed this temple as Zen temple. Several major Buddha’s relics are kept here. During the Onin War, it sat on fire for two times. In 1950, it was burned off accidently by a monk who committed suicide.  In 1955, Kinkaku-Ji was renovated properly.

3. Bulguksa Temple

Bulguksa Temple

Located in North Gyeongsang, this Buddhist temple was listed at the list of UNESCO Heritage Site in 1995. In this temple, the stone structures are thoughtfully preserved and seven of them have been officially declared as Korean National Treasures.

Known as Sri Harmandir Sahib in India, the Golden Temple is among the most sacred structures for Sikhs worldwide. Initially, it was just a tranquil lake in the mid of the forest where Lord Buddha stepped for meditation. Sikh religion’s founder, Guru Nanak also stopped here. His followers continued his tradition even after his death. Under the regulation of each Sikh guru, the temple started becoming more and more glorious over the centuries. It is built with gold and marble and designed with a lot of valuable gems.

Initiated in 1906, the Buddhist monastery is originally known as Da Maopeng which means “A Big Hut”. There were three visiting monks who started it. The main temple has three bronze statues of Buddha to symbolize past, present and future. The 112 ft. long Tian Tan Buddha is the tallest, bronze seated, outdoor Buddha here.
