Tomonin Temple Reviews
桓武天皇から延暦寺の東を守る門として創建された寺院です。山門には大きな提灯が吊り下げられており、両側には風神・雷神の像が有ります。これだけでも普通のお寺とは違いますね。境内にはこれといった特徴は在りませんが参拝客が座れるような、長椅子が置いてあります。紅葉を見ながら、ここでお茶を飲むというのも絵になる風景です。 more »It is a temple built as a gate to protect the east of Enryakuji temple from the Emperor Kanmu. A large lantern is hung on the gate, and there is an image of Fujin and thunder on both sides. This alone is different from ordinary temples. There are no features such as this in the precincts, but there is a chaise lounge where visitors can sit. It is a picture to drink tea here while seeing the autumn leaves.
東門院とは比叡山の東を守る意味であり、この寺院は「守山寺」とも呼ばれる所以です。守山とは山を守ると云う意味で比叡山を守ると云うことに通じます。本尊は守山観音とも呼ばれている十一面観世音菩薩像。この寺院は歴史も古く、格式も高いが、文化財の保有も又、多い寺院で、ここの不動明王像は半丈六で滋賀県下最大の像と云われています。他にも重文を多数所有しています。国宝とか重文は国家のものではないし、ましてや寺院の... more »The Higashimonin temple means to protect the east of Mt. Hiei, and this temple is also called "Moriyama-ji". Moriyama is said to protect Mt. Hiei in the sense that it protects the mountain. The main image is a statue of the eleven-sided Kanzeon-an, also known as Moriyama Kannon. This temple has a long history and a high style, but it also has many cultural properties, and the statue of Fudo Myo is said to be the largest statue in Shiga Prefecture with a half-length six. I also own a lot of heavy sentences. National treasures and heavy sentences are not national things, much less temples...
I found it by chance and visited a shrine. I didn't know there was such a wonderful temple. Mr. Niwang is also wonderful!
I visited there early in the morning. If you go by car, there are only three stops in the worship parking lot on the right of the main gate, but there is a temporary parking lot. We recommend that you go to a beautiful time. In addition, because it is said to the east gate of Moriyama in the temple to protect the eastern mountains of Mount Hiei, there is an atmosphere when it is sightseeing in the set with Mount Hiei
