About this sight

Known as a scenic temple in Ohara, this temple was founded in the 7th century by Prince Shotoku in memory of his father, Emperor Yomei. The temple is also well known for being the hiding place for Taira no Kiyomori's daughter, who lived there in seclusion after the downfall of the Taira clan. Located in front of the main hall, there is a stroll-type garden with a pond and a waterfall.
