Heisenji Hakusan Shrine is a Shinto shrine in tThe temple of Heisenji was built about 1300 years ago at the entrance to the Echizen pilgrimage path around sacred Mount Hakusan. Heisenji was considered one of the main stations for pilgrims to the summit of Mount Hakusan. Today, however, only a small part of the original route remains. The original Heisenji Temple burned down to its foundation walls around the 16th century and thus it was rebuilt at the beginning of the Edo period.
