Kan-Bodaiji Temple was established in 751 as a branch of Nigatsu-do Hall in Todai-ji Temple in Nara, so the temple is also called "Shogatsu-do".
There is a great deal to see in this temple, including the Hondo main hall, the main gate, and the statue of the Eleven-Faced Kannon Bosatsu, which are all designated as national important cultural treasures.
The statue of the Eleven-Faced Kannon Bosatsu is open to the public only once in every 33 years.
