Kenninji Temple Sakuramon Gate Renovations Finished

kenninji「楼門」の修理終わる  建仁寺開山堂で落慶法要

Renovations on one of the main gates at Kenninji Temple are complete.

To celebrate this, the temple is holding a "rakket" celebration of the completion of a temple or shrine's construction.

Kenninji Temple is located on the edge of Gion.

The Sakuramon Gate was built in 1666 at a different temple, Myokoji. In 1885, the gate was moved to Kenninji.

Rot in the wood required repairs, which are now done.

For those in Gion, Kenninji is a quiet peaceful retreat.
