Origin of the name
The name was chosen because the principal image is Gyoran Kanzeon Bosatsu (魚藍観世音菩薩), whose figure is a maiden with her hair tied in a Chinese style topknot (唐様).
The following is a Chinese tale of the time of the Tang dynasty. The Buddha appeared in a beautiful maiden's figure, selling fish in a bamboo basket, and spread Buddhism. The sculpture was made based on this story.
