So is it certain that Kiyomori built the hall? The Heike Monogatari specifically gives his father Taira no Tadamori credit for having built the structure and filling it with '1001 images of Buddha'. Obviously, the Heike is quite suspect at times as a source, but Tadamori is generally known as having built Rengeō-in, the hall's 'official' name. Guess I'll have to get out my guidebook...

Hmm. Yeah, I dunno. I poked around a couple of the books I have here (Sansom; Paine and Soper's "Art & Architecture of Japan") and they don't say anything one way or the other... But if you have other info, by all means add it in. I'd trust Japan-specific materials you may have over this Global History of Architecture... Thanks! LordAmeth 08:40, 10 August 2012 (PDT)
