Eikando Zenrinji Temple, Kyoto City

Eikando Zenrinji Temple is located in the upper-central east of Kyoto city, at the foothills of the Higashiyama Mountain. This temple was originally established as a follower of the Shingon Sect of Japanese Buddhism, but later on became a temple of the Jodo Sect of Japanese Buddhism. There are two unique characteristics of this temple, one is the year long fall foliage that is found in some trees in the Temple premises. The second is the looking-back Amitabha Tathagata statue in the main worship hall. This statue has it's face turned to the side with it's eyes looking back. The legend has it that one of the Chief Priests of the Temple Eikando (in the 10th century AD) has fallen asleep on the temple premises with a statue of Amida in his hand. When he regained his consciousness, he saw Amida Buddha walking away from him and he turns around and says to Monk Eikando, "Eikan! Come with me". After this incident, Monk Eikando, created a Amida statue of this form (looking-back Amitabha) to remember this meeting with Buddha himself.
