Taisanji Temple大山寺

Temple

Said to have been founded in the middle of the Heian period, Taisanji Temple is also called “Tenjinbo.” The temple has a Higiri Jizo statue, and many students come to pray for success when they have exams. To the left of the precincts there’s stone monkey images known as the “Goen monkeys.” Their funny gestures are the opposite of Nikko’s three monkeys who “See no evil, speak no evil, and hear no evil.” This invites good luck.

Review of Daisan-ji Temple

Reviewed:2018/08/02 ユニークな「五猿(ご縁)像」
尾道七仏巡りにひとつ。日を限って日参し、一心にお願いすれば願い事が叶うという日限地蔵尊が受験生に人気があるそうです。御袖天満宮がすぐそばなので一緒に合格祈願するようです。境内の三猿は日光の猿とは逆の態度を取り、世の中の正しいことを「よく見よう」「よく聞こう」「よく言おう」ということを表しています。
Reviewed:2018/06/30 ポジティブに行こう!見てござる、言ってござる、聞いてござる。前向きザルでござる。
大山寺と書いて「たいさんじ」と読みます。境内の左手奥には隣接している学問の神様、御袖天満宮さんと石段で繋がっています。

米瑠山天神坊大山寺と称し、平安時代前期創建、延久年間(1069-1074年)に中興され、1175年(承安5年)に再建したと伝えられています。

境内東側には霊験あらたかな「日限地蔵尊」、前面の6体のお地蔵様は、心願成就の「重軽地蔵」そして庚申堂には珍しい青色金剛神が祀られていま...
Reviewed:2018/01/29 ちょっと小ぶりだがよいお寺。
御袖天満宮と並んでいる。静かなお寺。のんびりできる。お寺に向かって左から、西國寺への近道の入り口がある。

          There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
