細野要斎著『感興漫筆』第十三巻には、鐘の銘の序に「白坂雲興寺第7世の開基」鐘の銘は「貞享二年乙丑十月十五日加乗寺白卍山の撰なり」との文があります。1685年(0/1685)に鋳造された名鐘で、音色がよく 明治の頃アメリカへ売られそうになったこともありましたが、檀家総代が横浜港まで出向いて買い戻したという逸話が載っています。この鐘は戦前まで朝11時と夜9時に時を告げていましたが、戦時の金属供出の為、1983年(0/1983)年に新調したものが現存しています。現在は、大晦日の除夜の鐘、恩田の集い、行事の日の朝に時を告げています。

Ryujin pond
境内にある龍神池は、元は東西に長い池でしたが、1912(0/1912)The Nagoya electric railway(Meitetsu Inuyama line)が敷かれた際、池の西半分が埋め立てられました。池のほぼ中央に石がひとつあり、かつてはこの石を挟んで、南北に渡り石があったそうです。池の水は湧き水で満たされ、山門前の参道の溝に流れていました。池にはカメがたくさん棲んでいて、戦前には、子どもたちがカメを捕まえて家に持ち帰ると、親たちは祟りを畏れて、カメに酒を飲ませて池に放していました。

名鉄犬山線が敷かれるとき、龍神池を埋め立てる工事をすると祟りがあると言われたので、工事が進まなかったそうです。そのために、この池のところでは線路がカーブになっているという逸話が残されています。
