Daigo - ji Temple

photo name

Established in 874 by Shobo atop Mt. Daigo, Daigo - ji Temple became a Chokugan - ji Temple (A Temple built by the Emperor's will) in 907. As its importance grew, the Shimogaran (ShimoDaigo) came into being. Contained in the present Daigo - ji Temple are numerous cultural properties, including a five-tiered pagoda (a National Treasure and the oldest wooden structure in Kyoto Prefecture) and Sanboin Garden (designated as a special historic site and special place of scenic beauty), the latter of which Toyotomi Hideyoshi used as his own private retreat.
