Founder's Hall (Goei-do)

A wooden statue of Shinran Shonin is snshrined.

Completed in 1636,

this hall employs elements of traditional palace-style architecture

such as round pillars and hinged outer wall panels that open upward.

The largest construction project of the early Edo period,

its impressive breadth (57 meters) allows for a large seating capacity.
