Category:Daibutsuyō

English: Daibutsuyō (大仏様 lit. great Buddha style?) is a Japanese religious architectural style which emerged in the late 12th or early 13th century. Soon abandoned after its creator's death, probably because it didn't harmonize with Japanese tastes, it nonetheless influenced other building styles with its rational solutions. This grandiose and monumental style is the antithesis of the simple and traditional wayō style. The Nandaimon at Tōdai-ji and the Amida-dō at Jōdo-ji in Ono are its best extant examples.
