About World Heritage
Kongosammai-in Area 金剛三昧院地区
Formerly, this temple was used as "Zenjo-in" that was built by Hojo Masako to pray for the death of her husband, and she repaired Zenjo-in and changed its name to Kongosammai-in to pray for the death of her son Sanetomo.
This is a representative example that shows how Koyasan developed through the donation and construction by powerful aristocrats and warlords for the facilities of prayer-giving places.
