Horyuji Temple and Hokiji Temple, which were designated as World Cultural Heritage Sites, are reproduced in this model. The construction of both temples may be seen at a glance. An explanation is also provided by a panel-exhibition and a video.

These replicas of old rooftiles dating back to the Asuka and Hakuho periods enable us to appreciate the history of Horyuji Temple spanning well over a thousand years.
