Liudao Zhenhuang Temple is the pagoda head of Jianren Temple (the small temple in the big temple), which is intimately called "Lao Liudao" by Kyoto people. Near the monastery was once a funeral stop for the dead to be buried in the Bird's Border (a Hill southeast of the capital), known as the Six Road Pass, which is regarded as the dividing line between the world and the underworld. Six Taos are Buddhist terms, referring to the six kinds of underworld that common beings have to go to because of their good and evil actions before they live - "hell, hungry ghosts, livestock, Asura, human world, heaven. Legend has it that the well next to the main hall is the entrance to the underworld. Oeno (a peace-time nobleman) served the Emperor in the daytime and at night was ordered by the King of Yan. He traveled between the world and the underworld through this entrance. Every year on August 7-10, "Six Ways of Worship" is held here, and "Welcome Bell" is sounded to guide the souls of ancestors to find their way home.
I went to Kyoto in early August, so summer night sacrifices must be seen. From the Qingshui Temple, two Ban not far away, is the six Huangzhen Temple, bright lanterns, a continuous stream of people dressed in kimonos, very pious worship in it, although they do not understand their rules, but a sense of awe.
Every important sacrificial day, a large number of citizens come to pray.
Very magical temple, there is a terrible legend, there is a well, can lead to the underworld, interested to see it.
The scenery is good and quiet, but the legend is terrible.
