Bentendo Temple


"Honoring the Lake Goddess"

Benten, the goddess of Lake Biwa is honored here. The first abbot, named Tenkai, arranged for a shrine for the lute-playing goddess to be placed on the small island in the middle of Shinobazu Pond. The main hall on the site has been rebuilt since its destruction during the Pacific War. Here the incense of Buddhism and the shrine arch of Shinto co-exist.
