Anpukuden Hall (安福殿)

Anpukuden Hall was one of the halls of the dairi (Imperial Palace) in the city of Heian-kyo.

Situated in the southeast of the Imperial Palace, this hall was located to the south of Kyoshoden Hall (Palace Archive Hall) beyond Gekka-mon Gate. It stood opposite Shunkyoden, which was situated on the eastern side of the south garden, facing in an east-west direction.

It was also called Kusudono (Physician's Hall) because court physicians and medical students resided there.
