Heian Shrine has a moderately short history, going back a little more than a hundred years to 1895. The sanctuary was based on the event of the 1100th commemoration of the capital's establishment in Kyoto and is devoted to the spirits of the first and last rulers who ruled from the city, Emperor Kammu 737-806 and Emperor Komei 1831-1867. Heian is the previous name of Kyoto. A mammoth torii door denotes the way to deal with the place of worship, around which there are several historical centers.
The genuine holy place grounds themselves are exceptionally roomy, with a completely open court at the inside. The holy place's principle structures are an incomplete imitation of the first Imperial Palace from the Heian Period, based on to some degree littler scale than the first.
