The Hill of the Buddha: Gorgeous Temple by Tadao Ando

Published Aug 28, 2017

Japanese architect Tadao Ando designed a stunning temple in Sapporo, featuring a massive stone statue of buddha within a hill beautifully covered in lavender plants.

“The top of the statue’s head just crests through a circular well at the centre of the verdant mound, which is carpeted in 150,000 of the purple-flowering plants.

Visitors must pass through a 40-metre tunnel to get to the foot of the 13.5-metre-tall statue.”
