  • Comment:

    奈良時代末、東宮(のちの桓武帝)の病気平癒を願った興福寺の僧賢憬(賢璟)が創建。その後、一時衰退したが、江戸時代元禄年間に5代将軍徳川綱吉の生母桂昌院の庇護を受け再興された。このころから、同じ真言宗で女人禁制だった高野山金剛峰寺に対し、室生寺は女人の参詣を許可。そのため女人高野と呼ばれ、女性の信仰を集めた。屋外に立つ古塔としてはわが国最小の五重塔(国宝)(高さ16m)もある。シャクナゲやモミジが境内を美しく彩ることでも有名。

  • Comment(English notations):

    The main attraction is Murouji Temple, a beautiful power spot, full of female energy. It was known as the "Koyasan for Women", when the famous Koyasan temple complex in Wakayama Prefecture was open only to men. Alongside an interesting collection of Buddhist carvings on display in the main hall, the temple is well-known for its beautiful pagoda, which stands 16 metres high, atop a flight of stone steps.
