About Shitenno Ji, Osaka
Shitennoji is one of Japan's oldest temples. It was established and built in the year 593 by Prince Shotoku (famous for supporting the introduction of Buddhism to Japan). Having a rough history, the temple's buildings were burned down several times throughout the centuries. The present temple was, however, reconstructed to reflect the original 6th century design. Near the temple is the Gokuraku-jodo Garden. And within the temple grounds stands a treasure house that displays paintings, scriptures and other valuable belongings of the temple.

Shitenno Ji, Osaka Reviews
A fairly famous tower in Osaka, located in the city center. From the top of the tower, we can see the city of Osaka clearly. Inside the building there is also a place to sell, accessories, souvenirs typical Japanese and replica Shitennoji. Inside is also provided a place to eat.
Possibly the nicest temple in Osaka. Well worth a visit. But come here early to catch nice photos b4 the crowd. Pictures also get better at sunrise as its not too bright and you dont have to worry abt contra-soleil
Loved learning about their history and religion. Dont forget go there if u travel to Osaka.
Recommended to visit after visiting Osaka Castle (more historical information available)
Big and spacious temple ground. A little touristy, well maintained and nice place for a walk.
