Shotsuji Temple

Temple
This Buddhist temple, dedicated to Bhaisajyaguru, is located 10 minutes from the Sakaide-kita Interchange. The 33rd temple on the Sanuki 33 Kannon Pilgrimage, the temple enshrines a thousand armed Kannon statue and a statue depicting Bhaisajyaguru, the principal object of worship. Just when the temple was founded is not clear, but records state it was established to enshrine a thousand armed Kannon statue personally carved by the great monk Kobo Daishi when he visited the area to preach. The temple later underwent a restoration in 868 and was given its current name and was used as a favored temple by Emperor Uda and later Ikoma Chikamasa and Matsudaira Yorishige when they were lords of the area.
