Heijyo Palace Site 【World Heritage】

  • World Heritage Sites

The site of an enormous capital 1,300 years ago

The Heijo-kyo Ruins are at the center of the Heijokyo, where 8 generations of 7 emperors lived over 74 years during the Nara era (710~784). The Heijo-kyo Ruins Museum, which displays original size dioramas that recreate scenes from that time and rich excavated goods such as wood strips, money, roof tiles, and earthenware, and the Iko Pavilion, which preserves and displays the unearthed remains, are here. Also, the "Taikyokuden", the "Sujakumon", and the "Toin Teien" have been restored and now stand magnificently.
(Facilities inside the Ruins are closed on Mondays)
