An important national cultural asset built in 701, there are many stories related to this temple such as the sad, romantic tale "Anchin Kiyohime." Anchin is a traveling priest who betrays princess Kiyohime's love and runs away and hides under a large bell. Kiyohime is so angry that she turns into a huge snake, and burns Anchin, bell and all. "Kaminagahime" tells the story of the construction of Dojo-ji.   (*reference: Wakayama Prefecture)   official website ››  http://www.nakahechi.jp/
