Katsuo-ji

From Wikipedia:

 

Katsuo-ji (勝尾寺) is a Buddhist temple in Mino city, north of Osaka, Japan.

 

According to an English language brochure given out at the temple, the site was first occupied late in the Nara period by two priests, Zenchu and Zensan. The Mirokuji temple was erected in 765 CE. The name "Katsuo-ji" was given by the Emperor Seiwa. The temple was burned in 1184 CE. The present Main Hall and Temple Gate were rebuilt by Hideyori Toyotomi.

I'm keeping a daily update on my blog if you're interested in reading more about my photographic adventures in Japan.
