Back in 874, Rigen Daishi (Shobo) built a retreat on top of Mount Daigo, enshrining images of both the Jundei and Nyoirin Kannons, thus starting off the temple. Daigo-ji Temple has a five-tiered pagoda (national treasure), which is the oldest building in Kyoto prefecture, as well as many other buildings and objects designated as national treasures and important cultural assets, such as the Kondo main hall built by Hideyoshi. The temple was registered as a World Heritage Site in 1994. Moreover, the air-conditioned Reihokan repository publicly displays the Buddhist statues and pictures that recount the history of the temple. Many of these are designated as national treasures and important cultural assets. There are public toilets suitable for use by everyone in the Reihokan and the grounds. (Month checked: 2019.Jan, )
