Also originally called higashibutsuden-in “Œ•§“a‰@. A worship hall placed to the east of the pagoda *tou “ƒ, at early temples. One such worship hall at Koufukuji ‹»•ŸŽ› in Nara, is 7x4 bays and has a hipped roof *yosemune yane Šñ“‰®ª. It was originally built along with a 5-storied pagoda *Gojuu-no-tou ŒÜd“ƒ for Emperor Shoumu ¹• (reigned 724-749) as a hall for prayers said for the recovery of the retired Emperor Genshou Œ³³ (reigned 715-724). The Toukondou was burned down in 1017 and four times after that date. It was always rebuilt. In 1939 it was dismantled and completely repaired. The toukondou is similar in style and construction to the Toushoudaiji *Kondou “‚µ’玛‹à“° especially in its having an open veranda *hisashi ›ù, across the entire front.
