  • It is one of the visited place of Kobo Daishi's [3 Kobo pilgrimage". Ask a priest, sober compared with the East Temple, ninna-ji Temple is less, and is a history of deep Temple.

  • ** Introduction : Jinko-in Temple is known as Kobo Temple of Nishigamo by the locals. The temple belongs to Shingon sect of Buddhism. This is one of 3 temples in Kyoto associated with Kobo Taishi ( Kukai ) as his sacred ground. Other two temples are Ninnaji in Omuro and Toji near Kyoto station. The place was once called temple of roof tiles since it was resided by an artisan producing roof tiles used for Imperial Palace. It was one summer time when Kukai was 42 years old, Kukai decided to stay in this temple for 90 days for his training. The temple originally established in 1217 by a clerical worker of Kamigamo Shrine when he saw revelatory dream of Kamo Myojin ( deity of Kamo known for the power to control thunder ). He was ordered by Kamo Myojin to build a temple hall at a place where the sacred light was shed from above. Thus this place was named Jinko-in 神光院. 神 deity 光 light 院 temple → A temple where the divine light of Kamo Myojin shines upon. ( Trans-word+ TGM Kyoto Guide )
