Ganryuji temple

Ganryuji temple is located Tanba in Hyogo prefecture.

These are the main images of 88 temples, which are related to Kouboudaishi (Kuukai) in the Shikoku area.

Kouboudaishi is a famous monk of the early Heian era.

This temple’s founder is also him. 

Some Japanese people visit the real 88 temples as pilgrims.

It is called Hachijyuhakkasyo meguri.

Nowadays people walk and visit them to reconsider their own selves.

I thought having stone buddhas of those main images gathered in one place is interesting.
