Japan . Kyoto . Otagi Nenbutsu-ji Temple . 愛宕念仏寺
The temple, originally called Otagi-ji Temple, was first built in the Otagi District (The central part of present-day Kyoto) by order of Emperor Shotoku in the latter half of the 8th century.
 At the beginning of the Heian period (794-1192), the temple building was washed away when the Kamo River flooded. The temple was reestablished by Senkan Naigu (918-984), a priest 
of the Tendai sect, and became a branch of Enryakuji, the Tendai temple complex on Mt. Hiei.
 Over a period of three years beginning in 1922, the temple was transfered to its present location in the Saga District, in order to preserve it.
 The temple has a wonderful array of 1,200 carved stone figures of Rakan (disciples of Shaka, the founder of Buddhism) made by people from various parts of the country from 1981 to 
1991 for the reconstruction of the temple.
