This paper discusses certain elements of the architecture and some of the statues preserved in the Hōryūji, Nara, Japan, in comparison with similar structures and artifacts seen in contemporary cave temples in China, especially those at Mogao, in Dunhuang, and Longmen, in Luoyang. Several long-standing problems are elucidated, and tentative dates are established for the beam-structure in the roof of the upper floor of the Main Hall, the roof of the Tamamushi no Zushi, the Bodhisattvas painted on the door leaves, the murals in the Main Hall, and the statues in the Gojūnotō (Five-storied Pagoda).
