The main statue is a Kannon with 11 heads.

This temple is also the "Mountain Sanctuary" of Kakurin-Ji 鶴林寺.
Kobo Daishi practised austerities here when he was 19 years old. He had a dream and found a cave nearby. To rid the cave of evil spirits he performed a fire ritual and banned the evil dragon into the walls of the cave. You can visit this cave, which is about 100 meters long, with a guide from the temple.
