As you know, Kyoto is protected by four mythical symbols in four directions - the North protected by the Black Tortoise, the South by the Red Bird Phoenix, the East by the Seiryu Dragon, and the West by the White Tiger Kirin.

The temples are dedicated to the four symbols, and Kiyomizu Temple is the temple dedicated to Seiryu Dragon.
