[Photoblog] Statue of Princess Chujo

This princess was ill treated by her step mother, and became a nun of Taima-dera temple
It has been told that she gathered thread from lotus flowers,
and woven up approx. 4m square of Mandala overnight. 
(The Mandala is designated as a national treasure.)
When she was 29 years old, 25 bodhisattvas came to her to take her to heaven,
and a service is still held, based on this story.  Taken at Taima-dera temple.
