 Chion-in temple is the headquarters of the Jodo sect founded by Honen (1133-1212). The original temple was built in 1234 by Honen's disciple, Genchi (1183-1238) in memory of his master and was named Chion-in. Numerous buildings in the complex were burnt down in 1633, but were entirely rebuilt by the third Tokugawa shogun Iemitsu (1604-1651) with the palatial structures that stand today.
