Hasedera Temple

Hasedera Temple

The origins of the temple can be traced back to 686 when the monk Domyo enshrined the bronze plaque of the Lotus Sutra (a National Treasure) for Emperor Tenmu. The temple flourished under the aristocrats of the Heian Period (794-1185), and then with devotees from the Tokugawa family of the Edo period (1603-1867). The main hall (a National Treasure) features a large veranda that was reconstructed by the Tokugawa family. The long 399-step stone stairway (an Important Cultural Property) is decorated with large lanterns and covers the distance from the Nio Gate to the main hall. Visitors are welcomed at the Nio Gate by 100-year-old weeping cherry blossom trees. As the eighth temple along the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage that features 33 temples, it is one of the most prominent sacred grounds for Kannon in the country. (Image provided by Hasedera Temple, Nara)
