poster for Treasures from Ninnaji Temple and Omuro

Ends in 18 days

Ninnaji, the head temple of the Omuro branch of the Shingon sect, was founded by the devotion of Emperor Koko in 886 (Ninna 2), and completed under the following Emperor Uda in 888 (Ninna 4). Subsequent generations of emperors thus became followers of the temple. Today, the temple is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as one of the “Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto.” This exhibition features treasures of Ninnaji, together with Buddhist sculptures and other precious artifacts preserved at temples of the Omuro branch.
