SpotSangatsu-do

The Sangatsu-do is the oldest building at Todaiji Temple and contains a number of splendid statues of the Buddha. Tamukeyama Hachimangu stands to the front of Sangatsu-do and the stone steps beside Sangatsu-do lead up to the Nigatsu-do, in which Omizutori and Otaimatsu (Shuni-e meetings) are held in March each year. The landscape visible from the Nigatsu-do balcony is breathtaking and takes in the city of Nara as well as Mount Ikoma in the distance. To venture to the rear of the building will bring into sight an Urasando; a pretty stone paved rear approach, surrounded by earthen walls.
