Statue height :
Buddha Bari 69.9cm
It is the principal image of worship in Kyozo, designated as National Important Property.
It is most likely built in order to protect and preserve “So-Han-Issaikyo Sutra” which was dedicated by Motohira (deceased in 1157), the second lord of Oshu Fujiwara family.
It is the oldest example of the images of Monju-five-statues manifested in Mt. Godaisan, China. Also, it is the precious example statue using Gyoku-gan (crystal eyes) in early time, prior to the Kamakura period.
(Gyoku-gan came into fashion in Kamakura period )
