English: In Japanese a benten-dō (弁天堂 lit. hall of Benten) is a Buddhist temple dedicated to Benzaiten (Benten), the Japanese name for the Hindu goddess Saraswati.
  • Benzaiten is a highly syncretic entity with both a Buddhist and a Shinto side, the diety of knowledge, music, arts and science.
  • Worship of Benzaiten arrived in Japan during the 6th through 8th centuries CE, and temples still exist in Japan.
