This is such a historic place! Chinese style architecture. The museum is nearby. There’s also a replica ship nearby that’s worth visiting!

The old Imperial temple sits a bit alone on the outskirts of the city. Only the building and the old gate remains of what once was the whole palace, so you basically walk along a story gras path getting a feeling how large the area once was. Worth visiting if you're not in a hurry as it takes some time to walk to the ruins and back, and you cannot enter the ruin itself.

Brief visit, but interesting. It's free, so why not going there if you're in Nara. Nice building overall.

We were basically the only people visiting initially. The vastness of the original grounds was interesting. The main hall which is reconstructed has a throne which helps you to imagine it's previous grandeur. We thought it was worth a visit. There are many information boards with detailed information, diagrams and photographs.

These buildings are the oldest surviving wooden structures in the world and are fascinating in design and odd that they are as old as they are. Ruins aren't the word I would use.
