Sugozan Daikakuin Daihoji Temple菅生山 大覚院 大寶寺

Temple

Sugozan Daikakuin Daihoji located in Kumakogen Town, Kamiukena District, Ehime Prefecture is a temple for Shingon sect Buzan school, and the 44th temple which is just a half of the Shikoku 88-temple Pilgrimage. It is well-known as a Henrokorogashi sacred site meaning that the path from the previous pilgrim stamp office called Akashiji is very tough. It has been told that a monk from Paekche (one of the ancient Korean kingdoms) enshrined the Eleven-faced Kanzenon Bosatsu at around the time of the Yamato Court (400-700) and the Monbu Emperor built a temple in 701. Misasagigongen which is said to give divine favor for brain and head diseases, and a statue of Kongorikishi which is designated as a municipal cultural property, are must-sees in the precinct. It is known as a popular place for fall foliage so many worshippers visit.

Reviewed:2019/07/20 遍路も観光も・・・旅行は天気次第で・・・
天気が良かったら評価も4程度の遍路寺でしょうが、この悪天候ではせいぜい2。ここは縁起も深く、堂塔も境内もそれなりに素晴らしい寺院でした。何度も焼失の憂き目に遭遇した寺院ですが、時々の政権の庇護の元、現在に至っている遍路寺。途中の参道が整備されておらず、まるで川の中を歩行しているような酷さ、何とかならないのかな?

末期ガンで余命幾ばくもない母の病気療養の祈願に行きましたが、奥さんの偉そうな対応に幻滅 しました。残念です。ご住職にお会いしたかったです
Reviewed:2018/11/02 八十八か所のちょうど半分
四国八十八カ所の参拝で、この大宝寺さんが、第44番札所となりますため、これで、半分が終了することになります。なので、中札の霊場とも呼ばれています。かなり、山の中に位置しますお寺ですので、風情ある雰囲気が味わえますお寺です。

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country’s oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
