Taisanji is Temple No. 52 of the Shikoku 88 temple pilgrimage. The main hall which was rebuilt in 1305,has been designated as a National Treasure, while the Niomon Gate is an important national cultural property. Taisanji has wonderful views of the Shikoku Mountains. The main bhall is one of the more spectacular on the pilgrimage and said to have been built in one day by a merchant who was miraculously delivered from a storm while sailing with a cargo on the Inland Sea. An unforgettable feature of Taisan-ji is the bell tower with its paintings of heaven and shocking picture of hell.
