Gates Gates mark the entrance to the temple grounds. There is usually one main gate, and possibly several additional gates, along the temple's main approach. Example: Sanmon Gate of Kenchoji in Kamakura. Bell On New Year's Eve, temple bells are rung 108 times, corresponding to the Buddhist concept of 108 worldly desires. Example: Great Bell of Kenchoji in Kamakura.
