Renkoji Temple is believed to be the place where Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose ashes has been preserved since September 18, 1945. The small well-preserved temple was established in 1594 inspired by the God of Wealth and Happiness. It belongs to the Nichiren sect of Buddhism that believes that human salvation lies only in the Lotus Sutra.
The ashes came to the temple only for the purpose of a funeral ceremony but Rev Mochizuki, father of the present chief priest, agreed to keep them in safe custody. Netaji’s associates observe his death anniversary on August 18 at the temple every year.
