About this sight

Located west of Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, along Horikawa Street, this shrine commemorates Abe no Seimei, a yin-yang master of the Heian period (794 to 1185). After his death in 1005, the shrine was constructed on the site of his house. Visitors can see a statue of Seimei on the left side of the main temple.
