築地本願寺

ここは江戸時代の1617年に、西本願寺の別院として浅草近くの横山町に建立され「江戸浅草御坊」と呼ばれていました。
しかし明暦の大火(振袖火事)により本堂を焼失。その後、幕府による区画整理のため旧地への再建が許されず、その代替地として八丁堀沖の海上が下付されたました。
そこで佃島(現中央区佃)の門徒が中心となり、本堂再建のために海を埋め立てて土地を築き(この埋め立て工事が地名築地の由来となっています)、1679年に再建。「築地御坊」と呼ばれるようになりました。
その後関東大震災による倒壊は免れましたが、すぐ後に起こった火災により再び伽藍を焼失してしまいます。

現在の古代インド様式(天竺様式)の伽藍は当時の浄土真宗本願寺派法主・大谷光瑞と親交のあった東京帝国大学工学部教授伊東忠太による設計で、1934年に完成しました。
