Honno-ji is the head temple of the Honmon school for the Hokke sect of Buddhism. Since it was first established, the temple has been rebuilt seven times over due to wars and fires. A mausoleum exists here that is the resting place of Nobunaga Oda after he committed suicide during the Honnoji Incident. Many of the temple treasures are on display at the Daihouden temple museum.
