The priest, Tenka, established this temple for the protection of Edo Castle, then the center of feudal government and commerce in Japan. It was supported by the Tokugawas throughout the Edo period, till the mid-19th century. The temple pays tribute to the god Fudo. A major Buddhist priest, Ennin, made a carving of Fudo (now preserved here) after seeing him in a dream that he had in Meguro.
