SpotDaibutsu-den Kondo

The Daibutsu-den Kondo, or main hall, is the largest wooden building in the world. The current building however, is a 1709 reconstruction of the original two thirds of the original size. That said, even the current building took more than 20 years to complete, in the process using up 26,000 trees. The hall measures 57m east to west, 50m north to south and stands 48m in height.
