The statue in Main Hall is Fukuzo Bosatsu 虚空蔵菩薩.
The temple was under the protection of the Hachisuka 蜂須賀 clan of Awa, when it also served as a relais station on the road 駅路寺, providing horses and food to the travellers.
Is still very popular to this day. It has many statues of great value, most of them are now in the Nara National Museum.
There is also an Inari Shrine in the compound where people pray for good business.
