On the other hand, the Kiyomizu Temple structure was really incredible as well. How so? We were told that there was not a single nail used in its construction! How were they able to erect the temple that high without a single nail?? It was unbelievable! The temple offers excellent views of the city too, and there is actually a waterfall from within the complex. Visitors have often taken drinks from it as it has been said that the water can grant wishes! The line was really long and we didn’t have the time to wait, but haha I did say a silent prayer while I was there (Confession: I was too cheap to buy one of those wooden plaques with which I could’ve written down my wish haha– that would’ve been another alternative to the wish-granting water haha ).
