A Bell

This bell was in the grounds of the Daisen-in Temple. As the garden is 500 years old, I am wondering how old this bell is. We didn't get to hear it ring, but I am sure it would be loud and beautiful. If we look closely we can see the patterns and writing on the bell, and the dragon head at the top. Also visible if you look even more closely, are the patterns on those roof end tiles, and again under the eaves.
