Sanjusangendo is located in Kyoto and is known for the 1001 human sized wooden statues of Kannon, goddess of mercy. At 120 meters long, the columns within the structure are placed at exactly 33 intervals. It is place that was amazing to visit and absolutely no photos and video are allowed inside. Also you are not allowed to wear your shoes inside. They have slippers available for everyone to use in this case as well as a place to leave your shoes. Remember this place is an actual temple so please respect these rules and you may see a monk praying to the large 1000 armed Kannon in the center.
