mysterious roofs

An old shrine was at the bottom of the mountain where gods are believed to stay atop. It is Ohtaki shrine in Fukui prefecture, and has 1,500 years history.


The main part of the shrine looks two different buildings joined together, and has complicated roofs I have never seen.


The roofs have complex and intricate structures, and strangely you can see four gable tops from the front. There must be certain reasons and stories behind it I don't know. Just mysterious.
