Kofukuji is a Buddhist temple in Japan . It can be found in the city of Nara . The main temple of a Buddhist Hossó School was founded in 669, but it was known as Yamashina-dera. In 710, the temple was moved to the Nara city, and consequently renamed Kofukuji. The temple had been built from 710 to 730. This 50.8 m high, five-storey pagoda is the second largest in Japan. In 1143, a second, three-storey pagoda was added to Kofukuji. The temple is situated in a park complex covering an area of more than 500 ha. It comprises two more buildings: the Kasuga Shrine and the Todaidji Complex . Kofukuji was registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1998.
