Daimon Area 大門地区

Koyasan Daimon

This is the area of Daimon, which is the main gate of the sacred mountains. It is said that the gate used to be a Torii style gate and was placed in Kuoredani along Choishimichi a couple of hundred meters below the present place. The present gate was reconstructed at 1705 during Edo Era. It is a double-story gate that has three five ken (about 4.5m) wide entrances and is suitable as the main gate for Kongobu-ji.
