Mondo Yakujin Temple was established by Kobodaishi. The Buddha of Medicine is enshrined as the main Buddha of worship.
The origin of the name of the temple, Tokoji ( Eastern Light Temple), was derived from the Paradise of the Buddha of Medicine, from where light emits in the direction of east.
However, the temple is popularly called Mondo Yakujin, because the temple has been famous for the benevolence of Yakujin Buddha, who drives away from evils.
