Zojoji Temple

Properly known as the San'en-zan Kodo-in Zojoji , this is the main temple of the Jodo (Pure Land) sect of Buddhism established by Honen in 1175. Zojoji was founded in 1393 and moved to its present site in 1598 by Tokugawa Ieyasu. It became the family temple of the Tokugawa family and an administrative center governing the religious studies and activities of Jodo sect.
