Temple #75 is colossal. It expands over two city blocks with a street bisecting it. It is the birthplace of Kūkai who posthumously is named Kōbō Daishi (774-835). It is the third most important site relating to Kōbō Daishi of the 88 Temples. I walk the Kaidan-meguri which is a 90-meter path under the Main Temple done in total darkness. Always keeping my left hand on the smooth cold stone left wall, it becomes my guide through the maze.
