Domyo-ji Temple (道明寺)

This is a convent of the ancient Shingon sect of Buddhism located on the western side of Domyoji Tenmangu Shrine, approximately a seven-minute walk from Domyoji Temple Station. The Temple is dedicated to the 11-headed Kanzeon Bodhisattva, a national treasure, that lord Fujiwara Michizane carved himself. The history of the temple is also associated with Michizane's aunt who was also a member of the nunnery. In the age of civil wars in the medieval period the temple burned down. However, with the support of Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and the Tokugawa family, the temple was able to be rebuilt and became a temple authorized by the shogunate. The national treasure and principal object of prayer is on public display on the 18thand the 25thof every month. This temple is also the birth place of Kansai style sakura mochi sweet rice cakes and Domyoji Hoshii, dried boiled rice used to make Japanese confectionery.

Reviewed:2021/01/17 静かに参拝出来ました
道明寺天満宮に隣接する寺院です。神仏分離がなされて天満宮と別になりましたが、元々は道明寺の中に天満宮が有ったのでこちらが主と言った感じです。参拝する人も少なく静がに巡ることが出来ました。歴史有る道真公ゆかりの寺院です。

毎月18日と25日に開帳され 18日であれば[葛井寺]と合わせ 国宝の観世音菩薩像を同日に拝観出来ます。 こちらの《十一面観世音菩薩》像は 像高:98cmと大きくありませんが 本当に近い距離で拝観出来ますので 機会あれば 開帳日に合わせて 参拝されることをお薦めします。 なお[葛井寺]と比較すると 境内が狭い感がありますが 《本堂》前 左手にある説明文(添付 写真参照)に 江戸中期の境内図が記載さ...
Reviewed:2020/06/14 菅原道真ゆかりお寺
菅原道真にゆかりのあるお寺で、かつてはかなりの規模のお寺で、五重塔などもあったようです。
神仏分離などの影響もあって、規模はかなり縮小されて、今の位置に移転してきたようです。
近鉄南大阪線の道明寺の駅からも近いので、道明寺天満宮に行かれる際には、併せて訪問すると良いと思います。

          While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country's third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people's openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname "the nation's kitchen."
