Byodo-in Temple

5 1 Review

Byodo-in Temple is one that all Japanese people have seen — on the back of a 10-yen coin. The Buddhist temple is most well-known for the view of its Phoenix Hall reflected onto the surrounding pond. It's said that Byodo-in’s main hall was designed to resemble a ‘Buddhist Pure Land’, or Buddha’s palace in paradise.

Highlights

Phoenix Hall / Amida-do

Since 1951, the Phoenix Hall of Byodo-in has been engraved into the minds of all Japanese people — with its place on the back of the everyday 10-yen coin. The hall itself was once meant to house the regents of the Fujiwara clan, but has since been converted into a place of worship for Buddhists. Within it can be found the Amitabha Tathagata statue, a designated National Treasure of Kyoto. Look out for the two golden phoenixes atop the roof of the aptly named Phoenix Hall.

Byodo-in Temple Garden

On the sprawling temple grounds is a traditional Japanese garden. Designed based on the Jodo Garden style, it is a prime example of Heian period gardens. The landscape of the garden was designed to recreate the ‘Buddhist Pure Land’, complemented by the clear Aiji-ike Pond and majestic backdrop of the surrounding mountains. Byodo-in’s garden is also the oldest remaining Jodo-style garden, and was thus enshrined as a National Historic and Scenic Beauty Site.
