Eryu-ji Temple Tachiki Kannon-do Hall金塔山 恵隆寺 立木観音堂

Temple

A Shingon Buddhist temple located in Aizubange Town, Kawanuma County Fukushima Prefecture. The temple's principal object of worship is an 11 faced, thousand hand statue of Kannon nicknamed the Tachiki Kannon. It is believed that the hermitage was constructed by the Liang Chinese monk Seigan in 540. Inside the Kannon-do hall, there is a pillar that is said to grant your wish if you embrace it, and many people come here to do just that.

Review of Eryuji Temple

Reviewed:2019/11/03 立木観音で有名
会津には、観音をまつる寺院が数多くあるが、ここがいちばん有名。
実際に根を持つ樹木に彫刻を加えて、観音像にしたことで、立木観音と呼ばれる。説明では、現在も生きた根を持っているという説明書きだが、少し疑わしい。
観音の両翼に二十八神将像が並んでおり、これも見もの。
Reviewed:2019/05/09 見事な千手観音様を拝めます!!
会津ころり三観音のひとつで立木観音様がある恵隆寺に行きました。参拝は自由に出来ますが本堂の千手観音様を拝むには300円の拝観料が必要です。本堂の中には風神雷神像や他にも木彫像が何体もあり中でもやはり千手観音様は圧巻です。ただ像の周りなど埃がチョット目立っているのが残念なポイントですね。本堂の中にはだきつき柱があり抱きついて願えば満願成就すると言われてるのでこちらも是非!
Reviewed:2018/11/24 圧巻の千手観音
こちらの見所は巨大な千手観音様です。幕の中でお姿を見ることになりますが、見上げても顔がはっきり見えないくらい大きい像です。また、文化財指定されている彫刻にしては珍しく手で触ることができます(足だけですが)。
