Hall of Dreams (Yumedono)
The octagonal Yumedono, or Hall of Dreams, is one of Horyuji Temple’s most impressive buildings. The scholar-priest Gyoshin Sozu commissioned its construction in 739 as a monument to Shotoku Taishi. The building was constructed on the site of the prince’s private palace, where he lived until his death in 622. The Hall of Dreams derives its name from a legend that a golden Buddha once appeared to Shotoku Taishi in a dream.
