Seiryoji Temple



The principal object of worship at Seiryoji Temple is the carved wooden statue of a young buddha, Shaka Nyrorai, which is a national treasure. The temple belongs to the Jodo Buddhist sect and is also known to locals as “Saga Shaka-do.” Every April, the “Saga Dai Nenbutsu Kyogen” performance is held, said to be one of Kyoto’s three largest Kyogen performances.
