Nakanobu Koguen Garden Taima-dera - Taima-dera contains two famous gardens, the main one being the Pure Land austere garden at Okunoin at the back of the temple complex. The other garden is Nakanobu Koguen. Koguen is a moss garden surrounding a small narrow pond, with a teahouse facing it. Taima-dera was established when the Imperial Prince Maroko, the brother of Prince Shotoku, who worked on spreading Buddhism, built the temple in 612. Because it was moved to the present location in 681 by Taima no Kunimi, a powerful figure of the time, it came to be known as Taima-dera. Its object of worship is a mandala, which is a painting that depicts the teachings of the Buddha.
