Tourist attractions

It is said that Prince Yamashiro established this temple with prayers for the recovery from disease of his father, Prince Shotoku. In the Kodo (Lecture Hall) are Buddhist statues including the temple’s most sacred image, the Asuka period seated statue of Yakushi Nyorai (Bhaisajyaguru) and a standing statue of Kokuzo Bosatsu (Akasagarbha Bodhisattva). The Asuka-style three-story pagoda is one of the Three Towers of Ikaruga.
