Poem Monument(歌碑) Lotus Flowers (蓮公開)
In the western section of the compound is an ordination platform. The magnificent three-tiered ordination platform is made of stone and is often compared with the earthen platform made by Ganjin at Todaiji Temple in the 8th Century. There used to be an eastern pagoda. It was lost in 1802, burned down when struck by lightning.
