Nara temples expected to be on World Heritage List

The World Heritage Committee (WHC) is expected to decide Dec. 2 on placing some of the temples and shrines in Japan's ancient capital of Nara on the World Heritage List. The photo, taken Dec. 1, shows the Yakushiji Temple, one of the Nara treasures. The WHC is likely to announce the inclusion of the new sites in the World Heritage List on Dec. 5 at the close of its annual meeting, which began Nov. 30 in Kyoto, another ancient capital north of Nara, both in western Japan. The temple was built early in the 8th century.
