元々は聖武天皇時代の光眼寺が由来、隣接する観音堂にある十一面観世音像もそのころ彫られました。時代は下って戦国時代に寺院は焼失するも、十一面観世音像は守られ浄土真宗のお寺として向源寺が建てられました。寺院そのものは普通の地元門徒の為のお寺という感想です。ＪＲ高月駅から徒歩３～４分ほど、所々に標示版が有るので行き易いと思います。 more »Originally derived from the Kogan-ji Temple of the Emperor Seimu era, the eleven-sided Kanzeon statue in the adjacent Kannon-do was carved at that time. The temple was burned down during the Warring States period, but the eleven-sided Kanzeon statue was protected and Mukaigenji temple was built as a temple of the Jodo Shinshu sect. The temple itself is an impression of a temple for ordinary local monks. About 3-4 minutes on foot from JR Takatsuki Station, I think that it is easy to go because there is a marking version in some places.
The ten-sided Kannon is the Heian period, Japan the oldest statue of Kannon. It seems not to be known very much in history, but in Shiga Prefecture, in fact, historical sites and temples and shrines were amazing. In the Japan, there are famous national treasures and world heritage such as Kyoto, Nara, Nikko, etc., but it is understood that there is the one with a deep history comparable to Shiga Prefecture, and it was only to have not known until this age. I was drawn. In dō, please worshiping the Japan oldest ten-sided Kannon statue and Daihinai. My heart is calmed down.
The temple is small, but there is a museum of Buddha statues in another place. The parking lot is difficult to understand and is away.
