This is a statue of Taro Ten who used to live in Choan Temple Rokusho Shrine in the year 1130. There is a Sanskrit character for Acala inside the Taro Ten that is expressed in the form of a child with a tightly knotted hair. The children statues on the right and left side symbolize Kongaradoji and Seitakadoji. It is a crystal of wisdom of Rokugo Manzan at that time, which expresses the Acala in a friendly expression, in contrast to the commonly-perceived fiery one.
