The majestic Itsukushima Shrine sanctuary, seen today, was designed by Taira no Kiyomori, a powerful figure in the twelfth century. The architectural layout of these buildings displays the Heian period (794-1191) shinden-zukuri style. Its unique location, standing on the sea, framed by the mountain, makes this shrine so outstanding. It is one reason that Itsukushima Shrine was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage list.
