Temple 56, Taisan-ji

The Temple of the Mountain of Peace

Temple 56, Taisan-ji

Taisan-ji is temple No. 56 on the Shikoku pilgrimage. The temple is located in the countryside near Imabari. The characters that are used to write the name of the temple have the same pronunciation as the characters for “Easy Birth Temple” and women come here to pray for giving birth painlessly. 

In addition to being a holy man, Kukai was an accomplished civil engineer, and when he visited here the local people were troubled by a river that tended to flood and carry people away. Kukai supervised the construction of embankments. 

In 1881, the bell tower was rebuilt using timbers from the drum hall of Imabari Castle.
