The Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto is an UNSECO World Heritage Site that's consisted of 17 parts, all of which are either within Kyoto or nearby areas, particularly Kyoto, Uji, and Otsu.
Despite being continously hit by wars, calamities, and other forces of nature, the Kyoto Prefecture was not as damaged as it was anticipated to be, enabling them to build and re-build a good number of key establishments.
The Heritage Site's 17 components were all built between the 10th and 19th century, and each is considered to be a symbol in the particular period it was made.
Accoring to UNSECO, Kyoto's history, importance, and resiliency made an influence in the official selection.
The 17 is made up of 13 Buddhist temples, 3 Shinto shrines, and 1 castle.
