Shitennoji is one of Japan's oldest temples. It was established and built in the year 593 by Prince Shotoku (famous for supporting the introduction of Buddhism to Japan). Having a rough history, the temple's buildings were burned down several times throughout the centuries. The present temple was, however, reconstructed to reflect the original 6th century design. Near the temple is the Gokuraku-jodo Garden. And within the temple grounds stands a treasure house that displays paintings, scriptures and other valuable belongings of the temple.
