HASEDERA TEMPLE

FUN FACTS:

-- Hasedera is a temple of the Jodo sect, famous for its eleven-headed statue of Kannon, the goddess of mercy. 

-- The 9.18 meter tall, gilded wooden statue is regarded as one of the largest wooden sculpture in Japan. 

-- A golden statue of Amida Buddha is also featured on display.

-- Hasedera is built along the slope of a wooded hill. The temple's main buildings stand halfway up the slope on a terrace, which allows for nice views of the coastal city of Kamakura. 

-- Along the stairs leading up the slope stands the Jizo-do Hall with hundreds of small statues of the Jizo Bodhisattva who helps the souls of deceased children to reach paradise.
