Danjo Garan in Koyasan

Danjo Garan is found on the eastern part of Koyasan where a number of temples and pagodas stand closely. Danjo (rostrum) refers to the rostrum occupied by Dainichi Nyorai, the Great Buddha of Universal Illumination, the Principal Buddha of Shingon teachings, and to the monastic complex there. The name Garan derives from Sanskrit meaning a quiet and secluded place where Buddhist monks may train.
