Glossaries serve the primary functions of lists as well as present definitions to assist topic identification, link selection, and browsing.

Notes[edit]

This list was originally meant to be a List of Japanese Buddhist art and architecture, useful to help people understand articles about Buddhist temples, and it still shows a considerable slant in that direction. This is deliberate, because Buddhism if very far from my competences (and my interests), and I find terms like bodhisattva very hard to understand. I am interested however in temples, hence the article. I hope someone will fill the blanks I left. urashimataro (talk) 05:12, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Question[edit]

How should I understand: "It is a true two-story building (although the second story may be missing)..." in the kon-dō entry?bamse (talk) 15:44, 13 January 2010 (UTC)
