Todaiji

Todaiji is reputedly the biggest wooden building in the world. The colossal bronze statue of the Buddha Vairocana inside the central hall was finished in 751AD (although some bits, such as his hands and head had to be re-cast in later centuries). Read more about Todaiji here and here. (The second link is highly recommended.)
