Shuri Castle is the historic seat of the Ryūkyū Kingdom. It is located in Shuri, on the Okinawa Island in Japan . It supposedly dates back to the 14th - 15th century, like the other castles of the island. Shuri Castle had been the seat of the royal family and the center of the Ryūkyū Kingdom for 450 years, since the 15th century. It served as a religious and cultural centre. The castle is situated to the west, and its architecture is greatly influenced by the Chinese and the Japanese styles. During the Battle of Okinawa, Shuri Castle was almost fully destroyed, but in 1992 it was rebuilt again. Nowadays, it is an important symbol of the island's history and culture, as well as a frequent tourist destination. In 2000, Shuri Castle has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List, along with other monuments of the Ryūkyū Kingdom.
