Daisenji Temple's Main Hall大山寺 本堂

4.0

Temple

This temple of the Tendai sect of Buddhism is located on the mountainside of Mt. Daisen in Daisen Town, Saihaku County, Tottori Prefecture. It is an ancient temple said to have been founded between 717-723. At the peak of its influence, it had over 100 temples and 3,000 warrior monks, but the separation of Buddhism and Shintoism at the beginning of the Meiji period led to its decline. The vermilion-lacquered columns and green lattice windows of the main hall used to be the Dainichido Hall. It burned down and was rebuilt in 1951. The principal image is of Ksitigarbha.
