Shitennoji Temple in Osaka is regarded as one of Japan’s oldest official temples and the first to be financially supported and constructed by the country. The Buddhist temple was founded in 593 by Prince Shotoku and dedicated to the Shitenno, the four heavenly kings of Buddhism. The temple’s structures burned down multiple times throughout history, but were always accurately rebuilt, staying true to the original design.
