Daisho-in Temple

Daisho-in Temple

Daisho-in Temple is a temple complex that features many statues, buildings, and religious objects. It is one of the most famous temples in Miyajima. It is located where the founder of Shingon Buddhism, Kobo Daishi, first began the practice of Buddhism on Miyajima. Some highlights of the temple include the Reiho-kan Hall, a sand mandala, the Maniden Hall, the Henjokutsu Cave, and a tea room. There is even an interesting Buddhist ritual visitors can partake in along the temple’s steps. These are only a handful of the religious sites and objects found across this prestigious temple complex.

To illustrate, the Reiho-kan Hall is an important cultural asset designated by the central government. The giant sand mandala located on the temple grounds was created by visiting Buddhist priests from Tibet. Visitors will also discover the Maniden Hall, which is the main prayer hall where many worships are held. Continuing, visitors will find 88 icons inside the dimly lit Henjokutsu Cave, which represent the temples along the distinguished pilgrimage route in Shikoku. Travelers can even find comfort in the cozy Rokkaku Sabo Tea Room. The Buddhist ritual along the temple’s steps mentioned earlier involves the spinning wheels of sutra. It is said that when one turns the inscriptions, even without the knowledge of Japanese, they will reap the blessings equivalent to reading one volume of sutra.
