Zentsu-ji Temple Reviews
Beautiful Temple and surroundings. You can learn so much from this visit. The birthplace of Kobo Daishi and Temple number 75 on the 88 Temple Pilgrimage on Shikoku. more »
This is a very large temple and is highly recommended for a visit while on Shikoku. I haven't visited a large number of temples in my lifetime, but I have been to a few. This was one of the larger..... more »
Shukubo was great, I highly recommend the dinner and breakfast. Go to bed early so you can join the morning ceremony, although they don't have English translation, it's a great experience. :)
They have a lot of land. Very spacious, but kinda lonely and empty. I was so horrified after hearing stories from the local people about the temple. There was a monk here who gave physical punishments, and one day he kicked a boy in the ribs and broke his bones. Despite Zentsuji making a formal announcement that the monk was dismissed from his position because "physical punishment is unacceptable," they invite him to participate in many Temple events. I CANNOT BELIEVE THEIR NERVES. I also heard that recently there was a trainee who was drove into a corner that he slit his wrists. The standard employees were hard working and were kind, but the monks were the worst. The most LOW quality monks I've ever seen. I hate the fact that this place is part of the heritage. Maybe the monks here think that no matter how bad they are, as long as they are part of the heritage, no damage could be made to them. The worst type of people.
