Anao-ji Temple is number 21 in the temples of the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage (a pilgrimage of 33 temples throughout the Kansai region, all of whom enshrine a principle image of the bodhisattva Kannnon). The temple's beautiful garden is designated as a scenic spot by Kyoto Prefecture. The reclining statue of the Buddha (Shakyamuni) enshrined in the temple's Main Hall is said to have healing properties: if you touch the statue's body in the same place where you yourself suffer an illness, you will recover from your ailments.
