The seven principal buildings considered, necessary for a Buddhist temple from the 7-12c. They include: the main image hall *kondou , pagoda *tou ; lecture hall *koudou u; belfry *shourou O; sutra storage *kyouzou o; priests' quarters *soubou mV; and refectory *jikidou H. However, the expression shichidou might have referred to a finished building and shitsudou may have carried the nuance of a truly perfect hall. The seven main buildings erected at Zen T sect temples from 12c on were: the main hall *butsuden a; the lecture hall *hattou @; the principal gate *sanmon O; the kitchen building, often housing the administrative offices and living accommodations for some monks *kuri ɗ; meditation hall *zendou T also called *soudou m; bathhouse *ooyuya 哒; and toilet facilities *tousu i.
