【Temple that is faith from common people from a long time ago】

The history of Rokkakudo is old.
It is said, this temple was founded by Prince Shotoku in Asuka period.
This temple was encountered 18 times of disaster just can confirm.
However,  common people have been revived each time.

There are many traditions about Rokkaku-do.
I will introduce one of the famous tradition.

When Heian-kyo is was built, Rokkakudo was likely to destroy.
At that time, the hall has moved 15 meters on their own.

The reason that there is a lot of traditions, I think this temple has been faith in people from the old days.
