Shrine of the Sun

Shrine of the Sun was built in Dragon lands during Dragon-Phoenix War in honor of Hida Yakamo Lord Sun, [1] and it was among the largest temple in the Dragon lands. [2]

By Osano-Wo's Command Edit

Togashi Nyima, Mirumoto Daisuke and Hitomi Hogai were fighting in an engagement against the Phoenix that ended with Tamori, Dark Oracle of Fire, showing up in disguise as Shiba Aikune and wrecking havoc on the Dragon army, leaving the three men as the only survivors. They were saved by the intervention of Osano-Wo, who explained Tamori's deception and told them to construct a shrine dedicated to Lord Sun, in order to gain his assistance against Tamori. Nyima volunteered to be one of the monks to tend to this temple. [3]

Seven Favored Edit

A total of seven Dragon were selected as Guardians of the Sun, and each given a Rising Sun tattoo to represent Lord Yakamo's power. Occasionally they received a celestial vision from Lord Sun and set out to correct an evil in the land. [2]

Training Grounds Edit

After the High House of Light was nearly destroyed during the War of Dark Fire, the Ise Zumi relocated their training grounds largely to the Temple of the Sun. [4]
