Prefectural Preservation of Cultural Property
This is one of the halls located along the ascetic trail from Sanbutsu-ji Temple’s Hon-do Hall to Nageiredo Hall.
It was built on the trail and it is found right before Nageiredo. As people need to pass through a narrow pathway between the rock and the hall in order to reach Nageiredo, pilgrims call this place “tainai kuguri” (passing through the womb).
The cave is symbolically seen as a womb where one can attain a new life by entering and coming out of that womb.
“Standing Statue of Sho Kannon” is the principal object of worship.
