Former Daijo-in Temple Garden(Daijo-in Temple Garden Heritage Center) 【名勝 旧大乗院庭園(名勝大乗院庭園文化館)】

The former Daijo-in temple prospered as a temple whose chief priest was a member of the imperial family at the Kohfuku-ji temple from the Heian era to the Muromachi era. It is said that the garden which had temporarily been ruined was restored by Zenami, the greatest gardener in those days, in the late 15th century. Today, a part of it remains just south of the Nara Hotel. In addition, at the " Daijo-in Temple Garden Heritage Center " built in one corner, a model of the former Daijoin Temple and related materials are open to the public.
