Shorinji –temple is a temple that is located in Sakurai-shi in Nara Prefecture. This temple is famous for its national treasure, the Eleven-headed Knannon (Goddess of Mercy). When I was working at Aichi University of Arts, I used to take my students to this temple every year as part of their antique study trip. This is a very quiet temple located at the foot of a mountain.
