Yakushi-ji Temple Gate Gargoyle - Nara Japan
Weathered to a rich patina by a millenium of constant vigil, this gate gargoyle at Yakushi-ji Temple warns away any evil entity that may attempt to enter the sacred compound.
Yakushi-ji Temple dates to the 8th century and is one of three great, ancient temples of Japan located in Nara City. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Japan National Treasure.
