The Komyozenji Temple in Kyoto is a Buddhist temple that was founded in 1273 by the Buddhist priest Tetsugyu Enshin. The temple is known for its rhododendrons, autumn leaves and Karesansui rock gardens and belongs to the Tofukuji school of Rinzai Zen Buddhism. In the Main hall is a statue of the Medicine Buddha Bhaisajyaguru.
The main attraction of Komyozenji is its beautiful Japanese gardens. The temple has two rock gardens that visitors can admire. The smaller of the two gardens consists of fifteen rocks set amid raked pebbles. The rocks are distributed in such a way that they form the Japanese symbol for "" light "". The larger garden can be viewed from the main building of the temple. In addition to stones, it also houses some plants. The entire garden of the Komyozenji Temple is one of the most attractive temple gardens in Western Japan.
