About this sight

Dating back more than 1,200 years ago, this brightly painted red, white and green gate leads to Mount Koya's main temple, Danjo Garan. Chumon Gate has undergone reconstruction several times due to repeated fires. The gate features two tiers as well as five sections and depicts four prominent figures of Buddhism.
