Bimyōji (微妙寺) Keller, Matthew P.


This is one of several minor temples on the Miidera grounds. This particular temple is for avoiding dangers and obtaining good fortune. The main image is an Eleven-headed Kannon. The temple also contains an image of a Golden Fudō Myōō. Said to have originally been established in 994 (Shōryaku 5, 正暦五年) by Keiso (慶祚 955-1019), the site was rebuilt in 1776 (An'ei 5, 安永五年).
