Long-established temple having sorrowful past

I visited three temples in Meguro last month. Daienji temple, Ryusenji temple and Gohyaku Rakanji temple.
At first, I’ll post an article about Daienji temple.
Daienji temple is the closest from Meguro station in those three temples. It is Tendai sect (Tendaisyu) temple.

Now it is not old temple and clean, but this was rebuilt after widspread fire caused by this temple in 1772.
I heard this temple took much time to being allowed rebuilding because of taking the blame for the fire.
After all, Edo shogunate didn’t allow them to rebuild after all. They could reconstruct at the end of Edo period thanks to Satsuma Domain .
