Fudo Myo at Ryuo-in


This rather fine Fudo statue is in front of Ryuo-in, a Shingon temple in the Miyaki District of saga Prefecture.


Also known as Saga Naritasan, it was founded in the mid Tenth Century.


The Honzon (main deity) is none other than Fudo Myo-O.


I didn't go into the main hall as it was very busy, so not sure what the Fudo there was like, however there was a secondary hall that has this one.

  1. Very interesting this variety of statues of the same deity!
    This diversity results only of the artist's work or is justified by local or regional specificities
