The oldest monastery of Taimadera Temple in Katsuragi City, Nara Prefecture, is known as the temple where Princess Chujo, a member of the Fujiwara family who wove the great mandala in one night during the Nara period (710-794), had her hair cut. 

The garden, renovated by Katagiri Sekisyu, is famous as one of the three best gardens in Yamato, and the tea ceremony room "Marumadoseki" with a round window can also be viewed. 

The Reihouden is open to the public on a rotating basis, collecting a wide range of valuable cultural assets spanning 1,300 years, including Buddhist statues, paintings, and swords, as well as items related to Princess Chujoh.
