Things of the glamour of Zuiun-Ji Temple

①History of Zuiun-In Temple

There is a grave in the grounds Kobayakawa Hideaki and a blood ceiling that converts floor materials from Fushimi Castle into building materials in the main hall. The main statue of Amnida Nyorai is called “Chigo Nyorai” becouse of its innocent expression. There is a mysterious story in the statue. In 957 to 961, the elder couple had a 3 years old boy. One autumn dusk, the boy suddenly disappeared his parents were pessimistic. A monk who listened to the background shaped Amida Nyorai statue. And the monk said that if you pray to this statue every day, you will be able to see the child again. 9 years later,the boy was found and he could back to his parent. The parent built a temple with gratitude. And they worshiped Amida Nyorai statue.

unfortunately, you can’t go inside….
