Daian Temple (大安寺)

According to the Daianji Garan Engi Narabini Rugi Shizaicho (大安寺伽藍縁起并流記資材帳), Daian Temple was first established as Kumagori Shoja (熊凝精舎) by Prince Shotoku in what is present-day Yamatokoriyama City (大和郡山市), Nara Prefecture. It was then moved several times, taking the names Kudaraji (百済寺), Takechidaiji (高市大寺), Daikandaiji (大官大寺), and finally Daianji (大安寺) upon moving to the new capital at Nara.
