Temple 76 Konzoji is on the Marugame plains and belongs to the Tendaijimon Sect, unlike most of the temples along the pilgrimage which are of the Shingon Sect. Konzoji Temple was built in 774 by Wake Dozen, grandfather of the Buddhist monk Chisho Daishi Enchin. He carved a statue of Healing Buddha as the principal object of worship and enshrined it at the temple. Chisho Daishi was deeply involved with Kobo Daishi, and served as the fifth abbot of Enryakuji Temple in Kyoto. On the temple grounds there is a popular Sand-Stepping Hall where visitors can step on sand taken from each of the 88 temples. After the grandeur of nearby Zentsuji, it is a tough act to follow. Nevertheless, Konzoji has its own modest charm.
