Statue Of Kshitigarbha In Kencho-Ji

statue of Kshitigarbha

The Buddha statue occupied the main hall

Shot at Kencho-Ji, a Buddhist temple in Kamakura, Kanagawa.

The inside of the main hall was dim. As soon as I entered into the hall, the statue of Seated Kshitigarbha jumped to the eye. The big statue was the principal image of this temple and occupied the dim hall. A rod was in its right hand and a sacred gem was put in its left hand.

It is believed that the Kshitigarbha has a power to heal the suffering people in the six realms. This site was originally an execution ground. So it was placed here to heal the soul who was executed here.
