Iwaya Kannon

Temple
This group of Buddhist images features more than 60 depictions of Buddhist deities including Sanjusan Kannon, Jizoson, and Fudoson carved into a rock face on the eastern side of Mt. Shinobu. It is said to have originated when the powerful Igarame Clan, which ruled this area from the end of the Heian period to the Kamakura period, hollowed out a rock to serve as a hall dedicated to Sho Kannon (Aryavalokitesvara). A separate Kannon-do Hall would later be constructed for the statue later. The current hall is a 1614 reconstruction.
