In front of the temple gate, there is a bust of KONDO Isami with Roku Jizo (six Ksitigarbhas) and Koshinto pagoda, and the KONDO Family's graveyard is in back of the Main hall. He was active as the chief of Shinsengumi and became Bakushin (shogun's retainer) from a farmer, however he caught by the Army of the New Government and executed at Itabashi.

His nephew KONDO Yugoro buried him at Ryugen-ji Temple located near his birthplace.
