Seimei-jinja Shrine enshrines Abe-no-Seimei, a prominent Yin-Yang fortune-teller, and the symbol of the shrine is a pentagram which can be seen many places in the precincts of the shrine.
The shrine was established in 1007 at the place of Seimei's residence after his death.
Since he played an important role in forecasting the Imperial court events in the Heian Period (794 - 1185), people who want to know their fortune or avoid any kind of trouble visit the shrine even today.
