Jyakkoin temple

  

Now I am in Kyoto to spend New Years time with my family.

Yesterday I went Jyakkoin temple in Ohara. 

This temple is a convent of the Tendai sect.

It was established in 594 by Prince Shotoku to pray for the soul of his father, Emperor Yomei.

On May 2000, it was lit on fire by somebody.

It was sad thing.

But 5 years later the main building and Buddhist image were remade. 

It is a nice temple.
