About Shitennoji Temple

Osaka's Shitennoji Temple is said to have been constructed under the auspices of Prince Shotoku. With red pillars and white walls, the buildings are unified in style and feature religious characteristics from the Chinese Northern and Southern Dynasties. This does not, however, diminish the elegant style of the Asuka period. The distinctive stone birds outside the temple are very rarely found in Japan. The turtle pond in the middle of the temple features a stone stage in its center, which was used as a sacred place for offering sacrifices and dancing in ancient times.
