Muryoko-in Ruins

無量光院跡(平泉町)

( Special historic site )
Muryoko-in was a temple built during the peaceful Golden Culture of the Oshu-Fujiwara clan, commissioned by the third lord Hidehira. It was a subsidiary temple of Motsuji Temple; according to Azuma Kagami, the official historical record of the Kamakura Shogunate, Muryoko-in was also known as the New Hall, as opposed to the older Motsuji; it was also slightly larger than Motsuji. Today, the site of the pond, the central island, and the cornerstones remain.
