Ishite-ji - Temple 51 on the Shikoku Pilgrimage is one of the oldest and most beloved of all the 88 temples. is considered to be one of the most spectacular of all the 88 temples along the trail. The sprawling Ishite-ji temple compound is composed of several halls, a three-storied pagoda and a unique inner temple connected to the main grounds via a cave. The dimly lit cave is remarkable in and of itself though dark and spooky. Ishiteji is known for its Niomon Gate, a designated national treasure. All of these structures exhibit typical architectural style of the Kamakura Era.
