Mount Koya Japan
Mount Kōya (高野山 Kōya-san) is a mountain in Wakayama prefecture to the south ofOsaka, Japan, primarily known as the headquarters of the Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism.
First settled in 816 by the monk Kūkai as a retreat far away from the courtly intrigues of Kyoto, Mt. Koya is located in a 800m-high valley amid the 8 peaks of the mountain. The original monastery has grown into the town of Koya, featuring a university dedicated to religious studies and over 100 temples, many of which offer lodging to pilgrims.
In 2004, UNESCO designated Mt. Koya as part of a wider World Heritage Site
