Iyadanji is most impressive in part because of its massive grounds that have been carved into a mountain, one of those temples with grounds that just keep on going and going. For this reason, many people think of it as the “cave temple”. The peacefulness of the surrounding forest and high elevation reminds many of Mt. Koya. The buddhas that have been carved into the mountain and view from the top of the mountain are most impressive.
