  • The temple was engraved with "the Most sacred mountain Terokuno-in, seeded Daishi Higashibayashi-in" When I proceeded the road which divided the AWA Shrine and the approach. The origin of this temple, Daido Annual (807) when Kukai has a visit here, it seems to be based on the farming has encouragement to take the hoe himself, and sowing the seeds of rice wheat. This temple will be the innermost temple of sacred sites, Shikoku.  Therefore, the pilgrimage of old times has caused the spirit of this seeded Daishi, and says that it began the pilgrimage journey from here. The temple area becomes scorched earth and it declines in the Warring States period when encountering it in the Sengoku age when it thrives in the Middle Ages. After that, the Hachisuka of the AWA Lord's protection will be rebuilt, and the donated of the fair is obtained as a prayer place. For kan'ei years (1624) when I prayed for safety on the way to the Lord's attendance, I was able to escape the importance of the Lord.  Since then, principal image Yakushi Buddha has come to gather more faith as a vicarious Yakushi. In Showa 58, the Buddha temple was Daishido is a building with an old color. It is a seeded Daishi suitable for the temple of the departure sow the seed of the origin rather than the Oku-no-in of the most sacred mountain temple. -the poem [The Grace of the Master of the blessings of Daishi Inaho Minori to sowing]
