An octagonal hall in a Buddhist temple. One or more Buddhist deities are enshrined within. The record SHIZAICHOU ޒ (718) belonging to Houryuuji @ describes the octagonal hall located within the east precinct of that temple. It has been known as the *Yumedono a. Another example of an octagonal Buddha hall is that at Eizanji hR(757-64) documented in the *Shousouin q@. The front and rear facades are 3.26m while the other six facades are 7.88m. Although it has an open ceiling *keshou yaneura ω, a coffered ceiling is attached to the four pillars *shitenbashira lV that are placed at each corner of the sanctuary. Seated Buddhist figures are enshrined beneath.
