Founded by Gyoki. Originally this temle as off limits to woman (nyonin kinsei); but, when Kukai as training here his mother,
Tamayori Gozen, came to visit. She could not proceed past the gate,
so Kukai performed an esoteric rite for 17 days and was able to successfully stop this restriction and bring her on to the temple grounds.
