The Native Place Tour of The Tale of Genji / Vol. 8

Byodo-in temple Phoenix Hall
(The Phoenix Hall of Byodo-in.)

This time refer to Byodo-in Temple located in Uji.
Byodo-in, the only surviving example of Heian temple architecture, was originally Fujiwara Michinaga's villa. It was converted into an Amidist temple by his son in 1052, the year that Buddhists believed the Latter Day of the Law (mappo) was to begin.
The temple's Amida Hall - now known as the Phoenix Hall - faces east over a large pond to give the appearance of Amida's Pure Land, or Western Paradise, seen from the other side of the Western Ocean. The image enshrined in the hall is Amida Nyorai, carved by Jocho.

The Genji commanders, Yorimasa and Nakatsuna, committed suicide in the Byodo-in fishing pavillion in 1181 after a battle at nearby Uji Bridge.

(A Kannon hall stands on the site of the old fishing pavillion at the northern end of Ajiike Pond.)
