Myoryuji Temple, commonly known as Ninjadera ("Ninja Temple"), was built by the Maeda lords, rulers over the region during the Edo Period. Although the temple itself is not associated with ninjas, the temple received its name from featuring many deceptive defenses, as ninjas did.
Since the shogun imposed strict building restrictions as one way of weakening his regional lords, Myoryuji was designed to circumvent the restrictions and serve as a disguised military outpost. It was built with considerable defenses and escape routes, so that its defenders could alert the castle in the event of an attack.
