The year 1895 happened to be the 1,100th year since the Heian Capital was founded. Marking this commemorative year, the citizens of Kyoto decided to praise the virtues of Emperor Kammu and deify him as the ancestral god of Kyoto. To this end, they created a shrine in the style of Chodo-in, the main edifice of the Heian Capital, dedicating it on March 15th the same year.
