The building is made up of a central hall with two L-shaped wing corridors on either side and a corridor at the rear of the structure. It is the central hall that forms the heart of this 3d building model. Built in 1053, the famous Phoenix Hall, or Amida Hall, is an outstanding example of the beautiful and complex nature of Heian architecture. It is named for the two fenghuang birds perched on the roof with their wings outstretched.

Byodo-In is a World Heritage listed Buddhist temple located in Uji, Kyoto. It was built during the Heian period and founded in 1052 by Fujiwara no Yorimichi. The Phoenix Hall became famous for its Vairocana statue until it was lost and replaced with a wooden statue of Amitābha. The statue, along with the hall, the temple bell and other parts are considered to be national treasures of Japan. The hall is the only original structure that remains at the site due to a civil war in 1336 that destroyed the additional buildings surrounding it. The structure sits on the edge of a large artificial pond that is located at the front of the temple. In 1997, the pond was dug up as part of an archaeological excavation of the area.

The Byodo-in Temple in Hawaii is a smaller scale replica of the original Kyoto temple. Located on O’ahu in the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park, it was opened on June 7, 1968, to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the arrival of Japanese culture to Hawaii. The temple covers 11,000 sq. ft and is a non-denominational Buddhist temple as it does not house a monastic community or any active congregation of Buddhists on its grounds.

Inside the temple sits a gold and lacquered statue of the Lotus Buddha measuring an impressive 18ft (5.5m) in height. Outside, the temple rests in peaceful surroundings. It is encircled by a number of large koi ponds stretching across a total of 2 acres and fragrant Japanese gardens set against the stunning mountains of the Ko’olau Range.

The temple is a popular tourist destination and is visited by thousands of worshippers all year round. The venue is also used for weddings and meetings.
