It faces due south. it is decorated with as many as 508 exquisite carvings. You can spend a whole day in front of this gate and never get tired of looking at it.That is why the gate is popularly called "a day-spending gate."
魔除けの逆柱 Mayoke Bashira(Column to avert evil spirits)
The 12 columns that support the gate have whirling patterns on them. The patterns on one of them , however , were purlosely carved upside-down to turn away the attention of evil spirits who are aiways jealous of perfection and are ready to destroy "perfect" things.
