In 710, the capital was moved to Nara and the Tenpyo culture flourished. The lone remnants of the Heijo-kyo Palace that served as the capital at that time is To-ji Temple.
Nara was greatly influenced by the mainland cultures of the 8th century. In the western reaches of the city is found Yakushi-ji Temple, expressive of those times. Nara Park, which equates to the outer reaches of the capital, has a collection of temples and shrines representative of other times. Nara is one place where you find a diversity of Buddhist art from differing periods.
