FREE Kyoto Kenninji Temple(JP076) version6.01 DownloadKenninji Temple, is a historic Zen Buddhist temple in Higashiyama, Kyoto, Japan, near Gion, at the end of Hanami Lane. It is considered to be one of the so-called Kyoto Gozan or "five most important Zen temples of Kyoto".
Kenninji Temple was founded in 1202 CE and claims to be the oldest Zen temple in Kyoto.
The monk Eisai, credited with introducing Zen to Japan, served as Kennin-ji's founding abbot and is buried on the temple grounds. For its first years the temple combined Zen, Tendai, and Shingon practices, but it became a purely Zen institution under the eleventh abbot, Lanxi Daolong (1213?1278).
The Zen master Dogen, later founder of the Japanese Soto sect, trained at Kennin-ji. It is one of the Rinzai sect's headquarter temples.
